We got some new friends this weekend. Hundreds of them. They are little red wigglers. We spent at least an hour on Saturday separating them out from the compost they came with and now they are all settled in.
Mr. Green has come up with an ingenious little gizmo that serves as their home and creates a space for the worms to eat your food waste! The best part is, after they eat, they leave worm tea that comes out the spigot on the bottom of the 1st bucket. You can use it on the plants in your garden or on your house plants. It's amazing stuff and your plants will thank you by being happy, healthy and hearty! There are also the worm castings that you can mix into the soil in your garden. Better than cow poop from what I hear! And they don't smell nearly as bad. . .
