I post this brilliant mspaint artwork of mine in honor of the fact that our worms arrived today in a cardboard box. We set up their plastic bin (which came yesterday) and filled it with shredded paper and coconut fiber and dried leaves from outside and bits of celery that went floppy in the refrigerator, etc. Then we opened the bag they were shipped in and spread the worms over the bedding. The poor things had clustered into a giant slimy worm ball, which they apparently do when stressed, and they don’t like light, so I didn’t want to take a photo of them. But they should be settling in now, burrowing down towards the bits of celery. If all goes well, we’ll soon have a happy colony of wormy goodness to eat our shredded documents and our food scraps, and to contribute to the growth of our plants. I’m so excited!
