Whether you live on a self-sufficient homestead or in an apartment in the city, you should consider keeping a bin of worms to turn your kitchen scraps into the best compost available. Here's how to get started.

Dave! I'm currently going through the podcasts starting with episode 1 a couple months ago. I listen to them and a couple other gardening podcasts on my ride back and forth to work.

Well today on the way home I'm listening to one during lily week and instead of lilies you elected to talk about vermicomposting. My mind is thinking how I could implement this at my place.

Then this evening I see you pull this article out of the archive. You're not going to let me go are you? Do you plan to keep nagging me till I do this...? Hilarious!

Thanks for the great information, I'm going to do this come spring.

Glenn, you will love doing vermicomposting. It's so easy and it just kind of sits week after week, slowly turning all that stuff into beautiful rich black compost. When you're ready for the worms, send a tree mail to @jon because he sells them for a reasonable price. Smiling
