It looks as if I got a worm composter just in time: my allotment site has banned the addition of household waste to compost heaps, because they are concerned that it was encouraging vermin. Having written recently about rats and compost, I am not entirely convinced by their argument, but them's the rules, so I have to toe the line (barring the lot of peelings I took down to the plot and deposited on the heap before I spotted the sign...)
So thank goodness the kitchen waste now has a destination other than the landfill: the wormery. I've got around to uploading photos of the Can-O-Worms setup process, which you can see in this blow-by-blow photo gallery. Please let me know what you think.
As far as I can see, the worms seem pretty happy so far. I am gradually adding more waste and they are rooting around. My partner is bemused by my daily worm updates but vindicated in his choice of birthday presents.
