Found my worm link-:
...and although I'm anxious to get started, I know how things go with me ever since my "round tuit" got lost-make the bin first, then order worms! Pictures to follow when it all comes together....and here's another helpful link-http://www.wormdigest.org/ , it's a vermiculture information site. You know what they say, "knowlege is power"....hopefully, it's also survival for my 2nd try with worms (for their sake!)

Greetings Lisa! Thanks for visiting Arboreality - I've offered a few thoughts on your question, as well as a couple links to other resources. Good luck!

Also, have fun with your wormies. A friend of mine has really enjoyed her vermiculture project this year, and while I've never tried it, it's always looked like so much fun! Maybe I'll get a little one started in my kitchen... :)

Happy Gardening,
JLB

I was thinking of doing this as well. It will have to wait until next year though. Tell me how things work out for you.

Hi Lisa,
I am having worms eat my garbage too this summer . . . first time I have gotten into the worm thing.
I'll post about it someday.
good luck with yours,
Becky

I love worms and vermicomposting! I shred a lot of paper in the course of my work. Since the recyclers won't take it in my area (paper in shredded form slips through the machinery), I put it in the compost heap, along with a bunch of worms. Works like a charm. I hear they are attracted to coffee grounds, too, so I dump those in there fairly regularly to keep them happy.

Of course, I've not had to purchase any yet. My four-year old son is an amazing red worm hunter. I think his daily record is 20.

I look forward to reading about your worm adventures!

Thanks so much for all the encouragement everyone! I'm really jazzed about getting this started!

Hi! Just got to your blog for the first time. What a fun blog it is! I love your freaky looking plants, there was a hair allium, some type of hairy clemetis, a stunning caladium. (Wonder if I can grow these things. I did find a site selling hair alliums!) Loving all the little froggies and snake pics, and some interesting garden deco. I'll be back soon.
