Worming is easy?
So, as I have been considering a third bin for the basement ( apparently the healthier you eat, the more organic waste you end up with ), I have started watching youtube videos, reading the forums, soaking up some more vermicomposting info.
It seems to me that vermicomposting is just about the easiest thing every family could do, to 1) reduce landfill waste and 2) create a fantastic soil amendment for their vegetable, flower, or container garden.
I see a whole lot of thought, and concern into, how to feed, how much to feed, when to feed, etc. For the last year, I have just saved up a gallon freezer bag at a time of vegetable and fruit scraps, waste produce that went bad before we got to it, coffee grounds, and when I filled a bag with a variety of material, in it went. It was covered with a few inches of shredded newspaper and I left the bin alone for a week. It worked into a weekly routine. Sure, I had a wet bin once, so I added drain holes, didn't feed enough as the population exploded, so I fed more, but the issues have been small. Is vermicomposting really this simple? Or have I been extremely lucky?
