Having ~1,000 live worms delivered to my doorstep felt god-like. It was as if I summoned my minions from a far-off land to come do my biding. I was all like, "Come, worms. Come and eat my organic food waste and old newspapers and turn it into nutrient rich worm castings for my backyard garden." (Followed by a baritone laugh.) And then the worms were all like, "Oh nice, food and a bit of water. This is just what we needed after our long journey being cooped up in that nasty satchel for four days."
It was starting to get a slight odor, nothing terrible, you really had to get your nose in there to smell it, but the worms got here just in time none-the-less. I'm hoping as they start chomping down, the odor will go away in a couple of days.
I am interested to see how fast these little bastards eat the food that's in there and how often I will have to add more. I've read that it can't be too dry or too, otherwise the worms will try to escape and ultimately die.
Like I said in my last post, I really hope this doesn't turn into worm genocide.
