Worm Inn Update – 11-18-08

Worm Inn on Laundry Hamper Stand

Just another quick Worm Inn update to send your way. On the weekend I bought a small laundry hamper stand for my Worm Inn. It was inexpensive and the laundry bag was attached via buttons, so I didn’t even need to cut it off (i.e. it can be used again as a laundry hamper at any time). Most importantly, the Worm Inn fits on it perfectly, without touching the ground. I don’t know about you, but I’d say the Inn looks a LOT better on its new stand than it did hanging from the celing (thanks to my terrible rope hanging skills – haha).

What’s great is that it now has quite a bit more composting room as well (expanded completely, the unit is approx 2 cu. ft). You can see below what the Inn looks like from above.

I’m happy to report that the worms are continuing to look vigorous and healthy in their new home – they seem to be LOVING the leaves I put in on top. I think I’m going to add some more (leaves) now that there is more room in there.

Unfortunately, some recent worm orders served to postpone the addition of any more worms to the system, but have no fear – I’ll add the full 3 lbs before too long.

Anyway – that’s all for now.
