As you may remember if you’re following my soil-making attempts, I had a beehive in my trashcan composter, so had to throw it away (bee residue would only attract more.)
In California there’s a movement to make composting mandatory, which totally makes me laugh—you can’t even find composters at most garden shops, let alone Home Depot or Lowes. You can order them online, but they cost around $200 plus a hefty shipping fee.
So my specialty nursery (City Farmers, it’s amazing) convinced me to try worms. (His first suggestion was a horse, haha). I’m keeping a small, regular hot compost in addition.
Think worms are easy? The instruction booklet is about 20 pages long! I’m hoping the little guys are OK, they are hiding right now.
