On Wednesday our shipment of a pound of worms (approximately 500 worms) arrived. How exciting. Antonio was all oo's and ah's, but did not want to try to touch them. So our worms are now happily in their new home (or at least we hope), in our home-made compost bin. I am excited to finally start composting our kitchen scraps and producing our very own fertilizer. One step closer to closing the loop and being more self sufficient at our little homestead.
