On saturday the little farmer and I made a compost worm bin for inside. We had a lot of fun together. Here is how we did it:
What you will need:
2 plastic tubs ( one of the lids from the tub)
Screen (from an old window or screen you have bought) ( or from a father in law who had some he wasn't using :)
2 bricks or rocks
We started by drilling 1/8 inch holes around one of the plastic tubs.
Then we lined the tub with the holes with the screen and secured it to the tub with duct tape.( the screen is there to make sure the worms don't crawl out but also to strain all the compost tea that will come out and go into the bottom tub.)
Next we cut up newspaper into strips and tore cardboard up into pieces then we wet those with a spray bottle. Only get them really moist not dripping wet.
Then we added the coffee grounds, the food scrapes and leaves.Then you mix it all together. I have read to leave it sit for a week. Which is when our worms are suppose to arrive so that will be perfect!
I will keep you updated on the progress of our compost bin :)
For about a month now I have become very bitter about not having a farm. I have prayed about it a lot. But my mind keeps wondering why God has us on hold here. We are so ready and passionate about farming yet he keeps us in a place where we can't do it. I have to remember the verse I use for the journey we are on , that is at the top of my blog. Jeremiah 29:11- "For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord... " Plans to give you hope and a future."
I know he has a plan for us and will use our passion for farming some how . I just need to keep praying for patience and wait for the plan to come through. But this is so hard when you have no patience! hahah
Well that is all for today! I will post again this week , not sure on what yet. Whatever is on my heart :)
Have a wonderful day!
