I have to update you on the worms living inside the composter. They’ve been there for over a month and they have not only grown, but multiplied! I am astonished at how active they are. About once or twice a week we give them water and a tumble or two then I open it back up to see what’s going on and there they are squirming back down into the dark. It is kind of like having another pet, though; you do think in the back of your mind….Do they have enough water?? I mean, if they weren’t there I wouldn’t be thinking that at all. But water is important to the composting process, so maybe it’s just as well. I water them at least once a week and it’s not even hot yet….
I think my husband is onto something here……What with fishing right around the corner. The countertop composter keeper is the bomb! I really like it; there is no smell (unlike the bowl I was using before). And it is somewhat attractive for what it is used for. They do make under the counter compost keepers too that are just little trash cans with a charcoal filter. I add a little shredded paper or dried out leaves or grass every 3rd time I add the gallon sized compost keeper of counter shreds to the composter.
