    I keep my worms in the mudroom/sunroom. As long as you keep tabs of the food being placed inside your container & keep it covered with moist paper, there is no smell and the worms thrive.

    Congrats on farmer of the day! Where do you keep your red wrigglers? My husband made me move mine outside. The heat was so hard on them.

    I posted progress pictures... ...my Summer labors... ...chicken yard with log-cabin style chicken coop... ...used rounded garden timbers for body and recycled playhouse roof for roof/lid... ...rain shelter on side with old mimosa limbs for perches... ...chicken yard built around fruit trees... ...fence edged with yellow lantana...

    Thanks for recognizing our efforts! We have added worms to our collection and plan to use the benefits of this fast producing fertilizer this spring!

    Congrats on both your Farmer of the Day and your reason for getting dirty! Teaching kids agricultural skills is almost a forgotten art. Keep up the good work.
