Well, the last of them is out the door and gone.

Over the last two weeks, I’ve given away the contents of my worm bins to several people. One fella was retired, quite nice, and made off with a bin full of worms and compost. He seemed pretty excited. Another woman harvested the compost for herself, kept a handful of worms for a mini-bin, and brought me back most of the worms. Then I set up a friend with a bin and worms so she can get her own bin started.

I decided after about 4 or 5 years that it was time for a break. It’s been so hectic around here, I barely have time to look after myself, much less the worms. They did not get a lot of love over the previous 12 months. Also, I felt like our crawlspace needed a break, too. The moth problem was annoying and I never could seem to break the cycle. Perhaps having no food source for a year will rid us of the little buggers.

So, that’s it for a little while for me and vermicomposting. I am happy to have made this decision, and to have come to it on my own. I fully intend to go back to it, maybe when Henry is a little older and can help us feed the worms!

    I understand your need to take a break from the wormies. My bin croaked some time ago and I have not had the time to start it back up. We also decided to get rid of our aquarium as 10 years was long enough for that hobby. Plus having that 2 ton feature in our house would have made the move we hope to make a real joy.

    Life gets way too hectic sometimes and it feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day to do 1/2 of what you want to do!
