Worm condo

After living with the worms for about a year, I decided it was time to upgrade their home. Honestly, I'm not sure how long I've had them. According to my blog, it was a month before Unor last year (this is what happens when you convert your datestamps to Czech and then babelfish doesn't translate Czech).

Either way, I was tired of manhandling the two tupperware storage boxes I had been using for their home. They were a pain in the ass and after all this time, I thought in would be ok to sink some money into my home composting set up. So I bought a 5 story condo from WormsWrangler.com.

The whole thing is pretty neat. Its made from hard plastic, has a little drainage spout at the bottom (which a whole lot nicer than constantly draining into a plastic pan), and a little roof. but what I'm really looking forward to are the easier worm migrations.

After all this time, the thrill of digging through worm shit with my hands has really worn off. So I'm hoping that this 5 tier design will really allow me to manage my worm migrations smoother that in the past. (the short story is that you start hiding all the food in the top end and all the worms chase it, leaving the bottom tier worm free and full of compost goodness.) And since each tier is removable, I can just pull it out and empty it before placing it back on the structure.

Genius! I just hope it works!
