'Worm Guys' new exciting product. From theworminn website.. 'Vermicomposting is a type of composting in which the breakdown of food scraps is facilitated by Red Wiggler worms. Vermicomposting can be conducted indoors and is a great set-up for people who live in condos, apartments or other places where traditional outdoor composting is not an option.Most often, vermicomposting takes place in a bin, such as a plastic recycling container. After several weeks the contents have to be separated into piles so that the resulting compost, or vermicast, can be collected for use on plants or in gardens.This can be a time-consuming and tedious process. The Worm Inn makes this process much more efficient...'

Well, spring is in the air. Time to check our worms and get the worm beds ready. WOW. What a wonderful sight-- our worms. Just love them.Since we're in Washington State and it can be colder our worms needed some winter protection to be on the safe side. If you live in the north or where it may get below freezing often during the winter, we recommend. putting your worm bin under cover or in the garage. Our bins that during the fall had one pound of worms --now have over 5 pounds. Wow. Yea.Now, that reminds me --'What is a Pound of Worms'? Composting Worms are small-900 to 1000 worms per pound. European Night Crawlers-about 450-500 per pound and African Night Crawlers are hugh--with only about 100- 150 per pound. We have raised the composting and European Night Crawlers as the African Night Crawlers do better in warmer conditions, and we're in Washington State.If you're lucky and can pick your worms up when buying them--check them over. Recently we know of a Worm Farm selling about 1/2 pound worms with 1 1/2 pound of bedding as 2 pounds of worms. Worms are packed in bedding when shipped--BUT a pound of composting worms 900 to 1000 worms make up a pound. Usually one pound of worms comes in about one pound of bedding.Happy Gardening. J.A.ROSE-BARTLETT 'Worm Guys'.
