Worms

Dec 30

We started raising worms when Emily gave Neil a little mail-order kit for Christmas.  Worms double in number every couple of months, and now we have our own little worm farm in the greenhouse:

Worms are under-rated as a farm animal. They’re easy to raise, they eat things that you’d normally throw away (our are raised mostly on coffee grounds and paper),¬†and not only are the worms themselves valuable for things like composting and gardening, but they’re a great source of protein for chickens, and the castings make a wonderful fertilizer.

We sell the castings in bags, and in a concentrated form as ‘Worm Tea’. We’ve seen amazing results from adding both to the soil in our own gardens.
