Petite Inspirations

In the name of inspiration and all things interesting to me and hopefully you.

Worm bin update


The picture here is another level on the worm condo that I started. I really should have taken a picture of the first level that I initially set up the bin. I’ve been using the worm castings from that bin to supplement all my plants. This picture is somewhere in the middle of being finished, maybe another month then it will be good to start using as fertilizer. The seeds that I placed in the worm condo sprouted! I didn’t mean to sprout them. I just added it to the bin to get eaten by the worms. I was so surprised to see that they were growing. Well, then again the whole thing is a bin full of worm casting (fertilizer) and worms. I found some other seeds that have sprouted in there. Having seen how effective the worm casting is on seeds, I’ve been adding a little scoop of it to the seeds that I’ve been starting. I’ve noticed a difference that they have been sprouting up earlier than usual.

I finally put the worm bin outside. Originally it was under a table in the kitchen, but  the plastic resevoir holding the tea cracked a little, so now it’s permanently home outside. I hope the worms can stand the heat and our so-called winters here in SoCal. If you notice, it’s a little wet underneath the front leg of the condo. I eventually put an old pie pan there to catch the worm tea and usually dump the tea in my watering can and add extra water, and feed my plants that way.

Where do you store your worm bin?
