The composting mistake that I made is pretty simple – I killed my worms.
That didn’t work and the worms were all dead. So I properly buried their remains along with the newspaper bedding at the local community compost.
That didn’t stop me from starting a new worm bin. Why would I let it? I made a mistake, learned from it and now I’m one step closer to success.
I cleaned out the old bin, put a fresh bedding of newspaper and another pound of worms. This time I put the bedding in, dropped in the worms and let them get situated for about 10-15 minutes, sprinkled some food scraps on the top and closed the lid.
I’ll leave them alone for a week or so and periodically check in.
Any tips or advice for my second go around?
