    Hi wormnwomn, welcome to the Stew. Seems like you are fitting right in. :-D

    I have lots of worms in my yard too. This whole neighborhood used to be a cotton farm until the 1950's when the older members of the family died and the kids realized that they could sell the land for much more than it would earn growing cotton.

    I have thought a few times about starting a worm bin for food scraps, hadn't thought about putting it under the kitchen sink tho. I think that has to be high on my to-do list for this spring now.

    Under the kitchen sink

    Keep an eye on my blog. Tomorrow's post will start talking about different bins. This is a personal decision only the worm composter can make as it depends on each persons individual situation. Start by thinking of all the different places you could put a worm bin. Let your imagination run with it. Under the kitchen sink, in the laundry room, in the pantry, in the window seat, out in the mud room, in the basement, in the breeze-way, on the deck, in the garage, in the garden shed, in the green house, by the back door... The list goes on and on. I even read once someone took an old phonograph and made a worm bin out of it. You're only limited by your imagination and the reality of your situation.

    I hope the information I share with you here will help any who want to worm bin compost to take that step and get started.

    Hello, hello. I am definitely interested in the "worm thing". It is super hot here in West Tennessee in the summer. I have a large, very nice storm house. Would that be a good place for them? It's cooler in summer and warmer in winter in there than outdoors. 8)

    Hi Sgt, welcome to the Stew, from New Orleans, La.
    I have seen lots of crispy worms on sidewalks, but none with a smile on it's face.
