I have wanted a worm garden for decades but never got around to getting one. I was always afraid that if I forgot to keep the worms damp they would all die in the hot weather.
I had looked at the plastic worm gardens available in hardware stores but was never really taken with them. They were made out of plastic, and I was always worried that a dog could knock them over and it would be 'goodbye worms'.
Well I just found a great video on You Tube that showed me how to make a wooden worm farm. That sounds pretty good to me. It is natural material. It will insulate the worms in hot weather, and because it is heavier, would be more difficult to knock over by a snuffling dog.
It is so easy that I could make it myself, but I think it would be a good project for my Garden Gnome to do. It is simple, so he should get it done pretty soon, I hope.
