[QUOTE=JanB]No truly this is intriguing me. Where do you keep them? I always thought it had to be done outside till I read up on it a bit. How often do you have to clean the box out? I’m with Cheryl I think spring would be a better time for me to start them. You might be able to start a business of worm growing!
Its funny as I’m cooking I think….hmmm wonder if Norb’s worms would eat this? (not what I am cooking but the prep garbage! I really need to find another outlet!

We keep them behind the door in the laundry room in a rubber maid tub. Carol cut holes in the lid and sides and covered them with a screen to keep flies in/out. She added wet shredded newspaper to provide moisture. They must not be allowed to dry out or they’ll die – but not too much or they’ll drown. You also need to stir it up and move it around to provide air and avoid overheating. It’s not a matter of cleaning the box out. They take care of that. But periodically you have to remove the fresh compost that accumulates at the bottom under the raised screen. We are going to report on that when the time comes.
We would be happy to send you some come spring.:D
BTW, I wasn’t trying to get back at you because of all the mouse jokes. Just having fun. Besides, you are the one who brought up the idea of naming them, remember?
[QUOTE=JanB]Norb have you picked out names yet? How many do you need? Maybe we could help!
