Today I visited the worm farm under our kitchen sink. My dad recently built this farm for me and my forest friends. The worms in the box convert our table scraps into beautiful fertilizer and black soil! They also create worm juice which we collect in the bottom box.
The worms make free fertilizer! Just don’t feed them onion skins or orange peels the worms don’t like it because it irritates their skin.
After dinner, if our family has left over food scraps my dad will say “Travis is hungry.” Travis is always hungry, and we feed him lots of food like orange peels, apple cores, walnut shells, fish bones, coffee grinds, potato peelings, tea bags, and egg shells.
Today, we are feeding Travis rhubarb stems, onion skins, burned toast, some of Myles’ fur, pencil shavings, dust bunnies, and olive pits. Yuck. Travis turns the yucky food into beautiful nutrients we use to feed our fruit and vegetable gardens.
