Wednesday Lagniappe: Loove Them Worms!
The NYT, my go-to paper, has another great article for gardeners...this time on worms. I have had a vermicomposter (the round, stacking kind or worm composting bin) for a few years and I use it for the wonderful "worm water" fertilizer that drains off. Some people keep (smaller) vermicomposters inside their house, but I have not tried this. Mine is in my unheated garage. The worms do well during the winter. In the summer, on very hot days, I put some cold water or ice cubes on the top to cool them down- heat is the only thing that has caused them to die off.
OK, my composter is not neat and tidy (see photo above) but it does the trick!
Happy Winter Gardening!
