No in the mail we received a new addition to our family (about 1000) of them.
Would you like to take a guess as to what it is?
They come all packaged up in a linen bag.
Oh so intriguing I know :)
We have worms!!!
We have decided that instead of a traditional compost bin (which we've had for years) that we are going to switch over to worms.
Vermiculture to be exact.
We have about 1000 worms that reside a big rubbermaid container (yes holes were drilled for air and ventilation). Inside you put in a bed of cardboard and sherreded paper as well as your food scraps (veggies, fruit, pasta, and bread...no meat they are vegetarians like me).
It is truly a cool process to see how much the worms can go through and how fast they can break down the organic matter.
Once we have enough castings (aka poop) we can spread that in our gardens for some of the richest fertilizer you will even find.
Do you compost? If so what is your chosen method.
