Would you like to add nutrient-rich soil to your garden? You may want to try worm composting in a container to help you to get that rich soil. Here are a few quick steps to help you to get started.
The first step is to get a food-safe five-gallon bucket with a lid. The next step is to poke tiny holes into the bottom of the bucket and into the lid. Then, place layers of strips of newspapers and leaf trash or lawn clippings into your bucket. Next, add a few worms to your bucket. You can either purchase worms at a local store selling worms for fishing, or you can dig them up yourself. Just keep in mind that red worms usually work best for container composting. The last step is to feed your worms a small about of vegetable or fruit scraps.
A few things to keep in mind for the care of your worms is to keep your worm bucket in a dark and warm, but not hot, environment. Always keep your worms moist, just add a little water. You will want to avoid feeding your worms any dairy products, meats, or oils. Also, don’t forget to feed your worms regularly.
These are just a few quick steps to help you to get your worm composting started and to get you that nutrient-rich soil for your garden.
