Cleaned out the Fridge!

I try to clean out the veggie drawer weekly (lately it’s more monthly) and remove the yucky fruits and veggies that are beginning to look like a science project! This week wasn’t so bad. I suppose we have been eating a lot of fruits and veggies or maybe I didn’t buy enough!

Rotting iceberg and red leaf lettuce and mushy grapes are now being eaten by my red wigglers. No matter how bad they look to us, the worms don’t mind one bit. The nastier the better as long as there isn’t a rotting smell because it will continue to smell in the bin.

What’s on the Menu for Red Wigglers?

What’s on the menu today for Wonder Worman’s Super Composting Red Wigglers? There’s Red Leaf lettuce, banana peels, strawberries, oats, pasta, rice and spinach, among other things – Food scraps from the last couple of days. If you have kids and are looking for ways to get them even more excited about having Red Wigglers, make a project out of feeding your worms by creating a “soup” out of food that would normally go to waste – but still a good source of food for your Red Wigglers (Moldy bread? Bring it on! Rusty Lettuce? Yum!). Before putting this mix into the bin, add a bit of water to prevent any moisture from being absorbed by the mix from the existing bedding. Bon Appetit!
