I've got worms!

We started keeping worms about a month ago. They eat all our organic scraps and are slowly turning it to compost - so we can grow more food!

Keeping worms is pretty easy - although I only have limited experience so far.

We are lucky to have the ecology center where I went to get some worm advice recently -

Another way to keep the food cycle really local!

I got worms too.. but man they are more high maintenance than I knew! They won't eat citrus, oily things, spicy/zesty things (think garlic, onions, or peppers), and get a little antsy if it rains a few days. Who knew?
