Worm farm update: It's alive!


composting worm bin

I took off the lid to feed the worms some kale scraps today and was shocked to see a mini forest of sprouts growing from it. It took me about 20 minutes to realize they are probably from the sweet pepper scraps I've been putting in there, the only thing I've added that contains seeds (I think). I guess it makes sense that seeds would grow well in a compost bin, but I'm not sure how to deal with this situation.

You don't need to deal with it, it's fine as it is, carry on. :-)

Cool, It sort of looks like a mini theme park to me (if I squint my eyes). So much colour.

I wouldn't do anything, except market the plants as "Super Organic," then sell the heck out of them.

I have to admit, the picture doesn't do the "compost" part justice... it looks delicious.
