Very exciting! I've been on the verge of vermicomposting for a few months now...mostly because I'm tired of schlepping my food scraps to the farmers market to drop them off at the composting table. This is inspiring. Though I'm still scared of killing the worms...

Here's a tip we got when we set our up.

At Step 2, use weed barrier cloth instead of newspaper, which will get wet and eventually fail, leading your bin to get maybe a bit soggier than the worms like and clogging the holes the worm tea is supposed to seep into.

Also, you might want to warn the others in your house that for the first couple days the worms will try to escape! It takes them a few days to appreciate their cozy home. Silly worms!
