Spring Garden Tips


Turn off the garbage disposal and put red worms to work recycling kitchen scraps. All you need is a plastic container, shredded paper, a handful of soil and a pound of red worms for every half pound of kitchen scraps generated each day. Punch holes in the bottom of the container, fill with shredded paper and moisten. Add the soil, kitchen scraps and worms. Stick with fruits, vegetable, coffee, unbleached coffee filters and all things plant related. This fun family activity generates worm castings for amending your garden soil and bait for fishing.
