Well we have had endless rain in Washington which as made my new worm composter become water-logged. The slugs have been in full force and my wood is already not handling not being able to dry out. So after getting 6 pounds of more worms from my friend at www.northwestwigglers.com I moved my worms. We have a one door metal shed on our property where I keep the lawn mower. I put the worm box on the other side. I think they will like this much better and should be able to keep them warmer in the winter.
On a side note I got two five gallon buckets of horse manure from my mom’s friend for my garden. We will see if this helps my soil a bit. But while going through the manure I got about another two pounds of red worms out of the poop. If you want to get a little dirty and have the hook ups this is always an option to start your composter. Otherwise save yourself the struggle and get them online.
Holy composters Batman. I went to a graduation party of a girl in our church and what did I see to my hearts joy and inspiration. A roller tumbler canister of goodness. I had never seen one like this and I would venture to guess that many of you have not seen a live version of this black gold maker.
It is a big hard plastic container that is on gears so that you can turn it with a crank shaft and tumbling wumbling the inside gets stirred up. There is a trap door that can be open to access the compost.
This one is crazy cool.
