My project today was to get a worm farm started. I bought some plywood and lumber. (non-treated because I hear that is bad for worm life)
I cut most of the wood to start with. I used 2x4s instead of 2x2s or 1x2s because they were cheaper, and I don’t know why.
I perforated the center divider to allow the worms to cross the border as desired. Every month or so, when it is time to remove the castings, I’ll prepare the other side with fresh bedding and start placing food in that other side. After a week or so, all the worms will move over to the side with food, and I’ll be left with the nutrient rich remains.
I rubbed the inside surface with linseed oil (not supposed to harm worms) and put two coats of primer on the outside. Tomorrow, I’ll paint a coat of exterior paint on it, add my shredded paper, put it in a shady spot, then go get me a pound of worms.
