What IS this for heaven's sake. The War of the Worms or WHAT?? Oh dear, there I go, shouting again, Ivanhoe and JonR will have my guts for garters.

I wouldn't infer from the fact that only Jon and I have commented on shouting that the rest of us love it.

Nor, I'm sure, would you.

...if you press it, they will come.

Amongst other things, the worms have eaten my newspapers, lots of cardboard, and my old slippers which disappeared completely within a few weeks. Other things they have eaten are better not mentioned.

TLMJJ has two wormeries, and Siduhe has one. A quick visit to the vet is a guaranteed cure...

Great - wormeries! My new favourite subject!

I just got one from these people - http://www.westcountryworms.co.uk/bins.html
(They will deliver to anywhere in UK apparently)

The bins they have suit the size of my terrace perfectly and I was on my way to devon anyway so went and picked one up. Mine is in the process of starting up and I understand they don't eat much at all for about 6 weeks until they get settled and established.

TULLMJ - I might pick your brains about it if I run into any problems if that's ok? You seem to be a successful wormery owner!

Yes, fire away if you've got any questions and I'll try to help. Your worms might take even longer to establish in the cold weather we've been having.

Mapmaker, my wormeries don't need to be fed daily like the ones that you mentioned. On the other hand, they are not quite as cuddly.

They don't demand copious cocktails either. :0)

Julie,

did you get your wormery started?

You are welcome to pop over if you would like to see worms in action (not everyone gets such a delightful invitiation) or for some advice on getting started. PM me if that sounds like the best offer you've had all week!
