The Chicago Sun-Times on worm composting:

The process is odor-free and bug-free, but a certain yuck factor may nonetheless be keeping worm bins from really taking off. Pat Schwarze of the Building Owners Management Association of Suburban Chicago said members learned about vermiculture at a trade show last year, but nobody bit. "People are interested by it, fascinated by it, but they’re not sure they want to touch it," Schwarze said.

  1. Every time I put a vegetable peel in the disposal, or a banana peel in the freezer, I feel like I’m wasting something. I’m asking Santa Claus for a worm compost bin.
    And a bat house.
    And maybe some toads too.
    I went out the other night to shoot down June beetles with pyrethrin spray, and man! It was earthworm booty time. They were everywhere!
    I had to tap on the ground with the spray bottle to make sure they’d go back in the ground before spraying plants.

    Worms rock. :) I so need one of these.

  3. Oh, and I need a bathouse, too. Firefly just reminded me. I know there’s directions for those on the web somewhere…
