I know that I said I would write about bedding for the worm box yesterday, but I didn’t! Sorry. After you have the box, you have to have bedding for the worms. You can’t just throw them in there with a few peels and start off that way. The site I used to build my bin says that I need to fill up the bin 3/4 of the way with bedding.

Bedding can be newspapers without colored ink, office paper, cardboard, leaves, or other things like that. So not only do the worms eat your kitchen scraps, they can help with paper garbage, too. I’ve also read that you need to put a little sand in it to help the worms’ digestion. The bedding has to be damp enough for the worms to be able to breathe and be happy, so you need to wet the bedding and wring it out.

Sounds like a lot of work. I started filling the box with dry bedding yesterday, but I don’t have nearly enough paper and cardboard to put in it. Once I have the box full of bedding materials, then I’m going to wet it all down and squeeze out the excess water. I promise I won’t do this in my dining room.

Mama asked in her previous comment what kind of worms are going to go in the bin. The most common kind of worms for worm bins are red worms, Eisenia foetida, also known as red wigglers. You can buy them at pet shops that sell them as live food, or from a bait store, garden center, or you can buy them from a worm farm either locally or have them shipped to you. I don’t know where I’ll buy mine from yet, but if I can find a local worm farm or garden center then that’s where I’ll get them. Plus, they might be able to help me out if I run into any problems.

We have two worm “boxes” in the side yard. Bob got a 50 gallon drum and cut it long ways in half. Then he dug a hole and placed in the ground so they would be level. We haven’t gotten the worms yet, but I am glad to know about the garbage scraps. I think his objective was to raise worms, not recycle. He said you can use straw for bedding. He filled his with cow manure that he got from the stock yard.

Keeping them in the ground like that is a good thing to do in places where it gets really hot. From what I’ve read, there are different ways of managing your worm beds depending on what you want to get out of it. They are supposed to eat a lot once they get going, so I bet it wouldn’t be too much of a problem to put veggie scraps out there, too.

When is he going to get some worms?

I have no idea when he will get the worms, but I am glad to know about the vegetable scraps. I will definitely do that when the worms go in.
