chris and i have been lusting after the vermicomposting tray systems we have seen various places (a la this), but i didn't want to spend a shitload of money on it. so we decided to make our own!
step 1: find the proper container. this thing is PERFECT - the trays snap together, and you can move the bottom tray up to the top once the compost in it is done.
step 2: safety first!
step 3: dremel large holes in the bottom of each tray.
step 4: cut wire to fit the bottom of each tray.
"it's like i'm in prison!"
step 5: vacuum the bits of plastic up off every surface in kitchen (including us).
step 6: take break to watch colts lose fabulously in the playoffs.
step 7: drill holes to string wire bottoms into each tray (and freak the cat out with power tools).
step 8: string the wire through.
the trays are ready for... the worms!
and there they are - one tiny, sweet little ball of worms.
