A fresh (?!) start....

Have just completed the rather disgusting task of cleaning all the rotting, decomposing, stinking, festering organic matter out of the wormery, yuk! Am now starting over again with a new colony of worms. Heather and the team at Wiggley Wigglers have very kindly sent me a new batch of worms and a new bedding block (free of charge, which is particularly kind of them). They arrived in the post today. On finding the small cardboard box I said to Alan (husband) "Ah, I think this must be the automatic door fitting for the hen coop........ oh, it's not, it's a new bag of worms!". This is not a sentance you hear yourself saying very often!.....With a half kilo bag of worms on the kitchen table I realised I needed to sort out the wormery and get the worms established in their new home asap, this wasn't really something that could wait for the weekend. So, they're all in the lower layer, they soon dug (slithered?) down into their bedding block. Will start adding waste, perhaps at a slower rate than before and with particular attention to including enough cardboard and shredded paper to keep the moisture levels down.
