Worm Composting

Last year in Martha Stewart Living Magazine's garden issue there was an article on how to do worm composting. We already had started to do that after learning about worm composting in our Master Gardening class, but I mention Martha Stewart to show this is a classy thing to do. We modified a Rubermade 10 gallon tote. The worms are a special red worm which we purchased from the Worm Lady in Kalamazoo. We put shredded newspaper and vegetable scraps in the bin. We don't put in meat or dairy because that would smell bad and we either avoid banana peels or first nuke them to prevent fruit flies. It provides compost for indoor plants, it doesn't smell at all, and the worms are happy easy to care for pets.
