With no guidance or assistance from anyone - I MADE a very sturdy and fairly good-looking wood worm bin. I have amazed myself. Who knows what else I can do! Maybe I'll build a guest house in the back next!
|Gluing proved to be an important step!|
|I veered off the directions at some point....and this all would have gone better if I had followed every direction on the guide I found online - but it's even more admirable that I was able to improvise and still finish in a timely fashion.|
|Andrew assisted with some hammer-time.|
|The finished box - waiting to be occupied. (disregard the mess in the background)|
|WORMS!!!! This is just half a pound of red wiggler worms. Which will hopefully double in the next few months.|
|ACTION SHOT! Wetting some paper to add on top.|
|Helping my worms get all snuggly in their new home.|
|Night night little guys!|
I am so excited that I have completed this. Two weeks ago, I had no idea what worm bin composting was, much less that I would be this excited about it. And I don't know that I would have actually attempted to build something without buying some kind of kit - but I did it, and now I know I can, and that's the biggest accomplishment here.
My comprehensive organic class is just amazing! I've learned so much information and can't wait to put more of the knowledge into action!
