Tea Bag Vermicomposting

I’ve always been a “coffee guy” (nothin quite like a nice cup of joe to start my morning off on the right foot), and almost never drank tea. But that has changed a lot recently, ever since developing a keen interest in green tea (and herbal teas).

This might sound a tad extreme (or not…I dunno), but I am currently up to 6 or 7 cups of the stuff, on average, each day (still drink a bit of coffee, but not as much). My wife usually has at least a couple of cups of herbal tea each day as well, and so – for the first time ever – I have found myself with a LOT of used tea bags on my hands!

The Tale of a Ridiculously Badly Neglected Worm Bin

It’s been ages since I last uploaded a video, and even quite some time since my last blog post, so when I recently checked on a very badly neglected worm bin and marveled at the resilience of these worms (for what seems like the “millionth” time – lol) it made me want to share this with you.

I have a couple of fun new projects planned for these poor worms (hopefully it will be like “Club Med” in comparison to what they have dealt with). I will tell you about those in a minute, but first I should provide you with a little backstory.

Back in October of 2015 after (more…)
