New here but not to worming

HeatherRuDecember 10, 2012

Hello seasoned wormers.

I'm may not be as seasoned as many of you, but I've done this before, and then stopped. But I'm starting up again because I love to compost and you can't do regular composting during the winter (most of the time) but you CAN vermicompost year round and that's what I'm doing this winter with a makeshift worm bin and worms confiscated from my regular compost bin outside.

I've been reading some of your archives and I'm quite impressed with the knowledge and experience here.

I'm looking forward to learning even more from you all.

Vermicomposting indoors in the winter when it isn't a fit night out for man nor beast means never having to put on snow boots and a coat to compost a banana skin.

Welcome to the site HeatherRU and welcome back to wormin'! It is a tough habit to give up.

All my compost piles become full of native red worms in the winter because the 'post gets wet and stay that way until late spring/early summer.

Let us know how it goes with your bin.

Good luck, Pete
