(It will be interesting to see if there are more than 1 or 2 responses to this thread.):rofl1: I was looking at the pre-made worm composting, 5 tray systems and they're about $100.00. Then I decided to see how to make a worm composting system cheaply and here is what I found.http://whatcom.wsu.edu/ag/compost/easywormbin.htm Pretty neat. Good garden soil isn't cheap. So, if you need good soil for potted plants or even your garden, here's a neat way to make it. I'm wondering though....most of these instructions, videos, etc say to use red worms. I think it would be cool to grow night crawlers for fishing...even sell them. I haven't come across yet, a reason why they couldn't be grown in this. Of course, I haven't researched too much yet. Does anyone know about that? Why are the red worms better? Anyhow, I'm totally thinking of doing this with plastic bins. Does anyone here do composting? The only other thing....I might have too much stuff to put in the bins...like clippings from garden plants, like when you cut things back or cut off dead flowers, grass clippings etc. Most of the time I mulch my grass, but sometimes need to pick up the clippings and it would probably be too much for these bins unless I had several of them. But for kitchen waste, like vegetable clippings, egg shells, coffee grounds, tea bags, it would be great and fun to watch turn into wonderful soil. The water that drips out of the bottom makes the best liquid fertilizer too! If it's done correctly, there should be no smell and no flies hanging around. (very important or I'll dismantle the whole thing. lol.) I use to have one that was just a wooden, slatted thing that the previous owners built. I just threw stuff from my yard in there, but didn't turn it or do anything. I couldn't dare put in kitchen vegetable waste or the bears would be attracted to it. I don't have to worry about that here. Gosh, how can someone get so excited over worms and compost for gardens? LOL.
