|Worms are't terribly fond of the camera,|
so this is the best I could do
My little kitchen worm farm started out as a small plastic coffee can given to me by James, one of my co-workers. I then proceeded to drill holes in a small plastic tote I had purchased for their new home. After the holes were installed in the bottom, sides, and top, the aerated tote was nestled into another to catch any liquid that might drip if things got a little too damp along the way. Some torn leaves, a sprinkling of dirt for "grit" (worms have gizzards like chickens to grind their food), and a few table scraps were added. I gently poured the small, squirming mass into the middle and tucked them in with a nice layer of damp shredded newspaper.

The cycle of life is a truly beautiful thing.
