xc Worm Farming: Taking it slowly

Taking it slowly

Am adding waste slowly and making sure I include lots of cardboard (to soak up the moisture). I notice that the cardboard does get damp very quickly so there is obviously a lot of moisture in there.

Dear wouldbesmallholder

I am interested in this new wormery idea more and more - however i think I might do it differently.

When we moved into our very small smallholding we already had 2 composts in operation - hand built.

I have to say the chap who lived here before us seemed to me to have some very weird ideas - I now realise he was actually very clever!!

I couldn't understand why the composts seem to be heaving with worms - and it was only when it was too late did I realise that the worms made great compost.

I have neglected things a bit over the last 2 years much to my own disgust - but the composts i intend to resurrect. I don't want a womery - but would prefer to have worms in the original composts as they were previously.

I'm going to the wiggly wigglers open day at the weekend so will be having alook at composting arrangments with a view to seeing if I can get them started up again in the orginal heaps

Hope you have better luck this time

Hi Heather,

Yes, I believe worms are essential to composting. Would love to know how you got on at the Wiggley Wigglers open day.
