A decision has been made

We can not do conventional composting. We don’t have the space between our living space and the compost. The amount of food scraps vs yard waste, we have little to no yard waste or brown material to put in with the food. Our compost would end up being a container of wet rotting food…add in swarms of fruitflies and well, it’s not happening 2 feet from my door.

So in researching all the options, tumbling composters, rolling, super fancy/decorative composters we have decided to go with an unconventional solution.

We will be using worms to compost our food. They are a natual solution to our food scrap problem. WORMS, WORMS, WORMS. Madigan will have 1 cat, 1 fish and 1000 worms as her pets. Cool thing about the worms, a pound of worms can consume 1/2 pound of food scraps per day. And the castings turns into rich natual compost for the plants.

I am not sure if I will be in charge of the worm bin, that might be a job for the husband. I am hopeful that I won’t turn into a little girl and screech and run out of the room when they show up. If so it will make for a funny video.
