I can’t think of a way to make a post about worms interesting. This is post #2 about worms though, so I think that’s something.
My worms arrived on Wednesday! I was so excited and took a few pictures. Gorgeous, yes?
Heres the company I bought them from.
Warning. When I came home today my apartment smelt like a trash bin. I had moistened the soil so the worms could rehydrate, and perhaps added too much water because all the smells of the decaying food were pretty pungent. I covered the worm/food heap with dry dirt to cover the smell in hopes that balances things out. I also swept, mopped, did the dishes, took out the trash, and threw in a load of laundry juuuust in case the smell was coming from somewhere else. I’m pretty sure it was the soggy compost bin, though. So a note, if you’re going to compost, make sure you live with people who are cool with the possibility that it could potentially smell from time to time.
