Worms Finished with Business, Desire New Home.
After several months, the red worms that now reside in their bin in the basement have tired of their surroundings and munched up all of the newspaper strips and vegetable scraps they could. So, I spread their "product" out on a tarp in little piles in the sun and they dove to the bottom and formed worm balls. This made it easier to sort them out and put them into the old bin that had been refreshed with new newspapers. The castings will now go back to the garden as fertilizer for the squash, tomatos, peppers and eggplants. Good timing since they are hungry right about now.
