I had written previously about receiving a worm composting bin to review. Now as I present my ideas for great gifts for the holiday season and beyond I would like to remind all of my gardening/farm friends about this spiffy product.
The hubby had been wanting one for years but something else had always taken precedence on the “list.”
The system was easy to install – even with suspect assistance. So what is the purpose of all of this? The worms take our food scraps and break them down into incredibly rich compost. Hubby keeps them fed with the remains of the meal; peelings, rinds and eggshells and the like and the worms give us good stuff for the garden. Not a bad deal at all!
If you have a garden or are looking to put one in for the Spring you should look to a worm composting binas part of your overall garden maintenance plan. I know that hubby is very happy with our bin. And how are our worms doing? I peaked in to check and since they are not overly fond of light I caught a couple as they tried to wiggle down to get away from my flash…
…the red wigglers are thriving! You can see how rich the compost looks in the midst of the food scraps. We have Happy Worms to go with our Happy Goats! The garden is going to be happy this year too!
I am sure that the gardener on your list would love a SquirmFirm Worm Composting Bin under the tree. You can learn more about vermicomposting (that’s the big word for what the worms do) HERE
