Making Your Own Worm Farm

I admit, in most ways, I’m not a fan of worms. When we go fishing I still prefer my son baits my hook. And if I see a worm on the surface of a street I get the shudders. But in my vegetable garden I’m thrilled to see lots of these wonderful creatures in the soil. Making your own worm farm is easy and inexpensive!

I'm a wife, mom, and grandma who loves cooking, baking, gardening, and all things that go into making a cozy coop for my brood. Although I'm disabled I try not to let it get in the way of what I love doing.

      1. Gardening is really hard for me because of my disability but I LOVE the feel of the soil, the scenes of things growing, the sun on my skin, and especially eating what I grow!

  1. I knew that worms were beneficial, but I had no idea they were this beneficial! We usually put old vegetables and coffee grounds directly in the garden to compost, but it doesn’t decompose well. Now I know why. 😄 I like worms. I’d love to try this! I’m always rescuing the poor things when I dig in the soil.

  2. It took me a while to locate some red wigglers, but finally found that Walmart sells them as fishing bait. I rescued 30 of them so I could try this. 😀 So far, it seems to be going well but the worms aren’t eating the veggies fast enough. 😄 They need to multiply faster! And maaaaaaybe I need to stop playing with them. 😂

    1. LOL You should probably find different pets. If they’re not finishing (or nearly finishing) the food don’t add more. It takes a while for them to multiply and to make enough castings for you to notice. You have to bee patient. LOL ME recommending patience!

      1. Haha, I know, right? I have other pets, but red wigglers were new to me, and they felt really weird when in my hand. 😂

        Thanks for the advice! Haha, at this point, my mom is freezing their food for later. 😄

        LOL! Patience? I have a plaque on my wall that describes it pretty well – “Lord, grant me patience – but hurry!” 😂

      2. I hate the feeling of worms. I make Pete bait my hook when we go fishing. He has to do it even though he gets impatient because you have to do what your mom asks, right?
        I pray, “God, please give me patience. Now!”
