  2. Although I've been composting leftovers for my garden for many years now, I have never actually tried worm composting. I would love, love, LOVE to incorporate that into my routine now!

  4. Yes, we do compost and worms are wonderful for the garden and they also are great for fish bait, we used to have rabbits many years ago and would compost then and always had plenty of earthworms for fishing and my garden.

  5. I've had a worm composter before, but transitioned to large piles when we upgraded to a much larger garden.

  6. Never tried the worm composting but I have done composting. Nothing is better than feeding your plants that deep dark rich soil

  7. I have never done any composting. I would love to get into worm composting so my son and daughter can learn the importance of the "little guy" to the big picture.

  8. My hubby and I started raising worms in 1997 when we moved to a small reservoir in Texas. He really loves talking to kids about his worms. I love using the worm castings in the garden. We have a couple of different compost bins besides the wood worm bins. He has tried various worm bins.

  12. We have a compost tumbler...although I haven't mastered that yet. I tried to convince my husband to let me compost with worms, but to no avail...perhaps someday! - Jessica M.

  13. I have heard of worm composting but I never tried it. Our bunny died (we got him because bunny poo makes great fertilizer) and I had only been considering them for underneath his cage. It would have been a great usage of our limited space.

  14. I've never composted before but worms don't bother me so would be a great opportunity to learn.

  15. We compost kitchen waste combined with dried yard clippings and leaves. It really gives a boost to the soil and vegetable plants. Worm composting? Nope, not yet!

    ReplyDelete
  16. we have been composting for over 30 years & love the rewards of doing so

  20. Yes, at my old house we had a huge compost, but it wasn't in a bin so my free range chickens got into and ate it all, naughty birds. It was going really well too. I had lots of worms, and other assorted compost bugs that were beneficial. Here, I would need a bin because my dog and the neighborhood cats would eat it.

  21. I have never done worm composting but would be very willing to learn about it. My daughter an granddaughters are big gardeners and I want to help them this year.

  22. We do the typical backyard composting now--it's amazing getting that black, black dirt! I have to admit that worms are pretty gross to me, but I know that they make EXCELLENT composters and I am really excited to try!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I am comfortable trying anything new and this procedure sounds easy and effective.. Plus, I am pretty sure my five year old boy wouldn't mind keeping tabs on the worms and some dirt lol.....

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love composting of all kinds! However, we always tend to go slightly awry with it because we just use our homemade tubs or chicken wire cylinders. It would be so nice to have a fancy new composter!

  25. I have never done composting at all before, but this is our second year growing a vegetable garden & I would like to try it!

  26. We have a compost bin at my school that we dump leaves, grass clippings and weeds in; but I've never composted at my home. I would love to have a worm composting set at my home. I've heard that the worm debris is great for the soil.

  27. I've never tried composting before but I would definitely be willing to try it out.

  28. We do a lot of composting. We started with a pile and discovered it's too dry here so we have to bury the compost and let the drip line compost it down between the plants and in empty areas. We've also tried adding worms, don't know if they are still there.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've never compost before, but I wouldn't mind learning.

  31. I do with the help of my landlord, he has an area in the yard where I can take certain foods that are leftover and other items that can be put in this barrel he has.. I am still learning and always willing to learn more :) so thanks

  33. My son has wanted to start a worm composting business for awhile so when I saw this I knew I had to enter! He has started one before but didn't know all he needed to know so this will help him. Tami Lewis

  34. I have never done this with worms but sounds like it would work great. It's not my favorite thought to handle the worms, but it's all good - I could do this :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I just started my first compost pile this year. I am using a recycled container from the city (they re-purpose old trash/recycling bins) and I find that composting is a bit more daunting than I expected. I think that I would be much more comfortable worm composting - especially with the dogs in the yard. The container is more secure and the worms more efficient. Plus, unlike the re-purposed container from the city, the worm composter comes fully contained and can be moved around the yard to maximize sun exposure. The container from the city has no bottom and I worry about the pets getting into the old food coming out from the bottom. :(

  36. I have never composted with worms yet but I have been looking into it. I do have a compost pile for the chicken & horse manure and table scraps.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have never composted worms, My brother did when we were kids he sold them to the bait shop. I remember being grossed out by them, but he also "fed" them cut up newspaper scraps. I have had a compost "pile" before but found my dog eatting out of it, so that is a nice gross share!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have necer done any kind of composting before and probably will never know lol

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would try the worm composting. The worms are efficient little buggers - and would help the quality of the compost and soil greatly. (around here all we have is hard Georgia Clay)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I haven't tried it, but I would if I had the materials needed to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  41. No i have never tried but would do it.

  54. My husband grew up on some acreage, and they had quite a large garden area and they would compost worms regularly.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I compost everything which is indirect worm composting. Last summer I bought a Garden Tower Project unit. It does vermicomposting in the center. I did not get it until the end of summer so this will be its first full summer but I could really see how fast the compost settled down last year. It is too cold here for year round so I have to go buy worms this weekend to start again. I did try setting up a plastic worm composting bin last spring but the weather here is just either too hot or too cold to have any degree of success outdoors and I don't have a place indoors, or I would happily try that again. I like worms.

  58. Yes! I have been composting kitchen scraps since I was a child and now share that tradition with my 3, almost 2 year old, and infant. Although we don't have an actual composted, we made a big bin with 4 pallets for leaves and sticks from the yard, and throw kitchen compost into an old garbage can with holes in the bottom. We would Love this for our big organic garden and my boys would have so much fun learning about worms!
