    here are my new bins ready to go for some worms. We put them in our garden paths as so not waste any space.. we used two drawers from one of those plastic carts. I put holes in the bottom for drainage. They are not big but they will have to do for now. We will have to build boxes for the next row between the next beds..

    What a GREAT idea for placement! Being buried like that will help insulate them!

    Enjoy your worm farm.

    That looks good.
    What kind of worms are you going to raise?

    I am not sure what kind yet. I want to do two things

    #1 I want to make a little extra money selling the worms to bait shops ect.

    #2 I would like to get great compost to add to my beds.

    any suggestions as to what type of worms.

    My plan was just going to go and get some from the bait shop and ask if they would buy the same kind back?

    That is really neat. I like how you put them between the beds.

    Just make sure that your vermicompost bins are in the shade, 60-80 degrees is optimal.
