When enough time has passed, add your worms.
Over the next few weeks, mix from time to time with your hand and monitor for too much moisture. If there is liquid at the bottom of the bin, add dry, shredded paper. The mixture should feel like a damp sponge.
When the food scraps have turned into brown compost, it’s time to harvest your compost! Pick out the worms and place them back in the bin to begin the process again with new food. You can keep this going for as long as you like, being careful not to add too much fresh food at once. The compost that your worms make is some of the best organic fertilizer available. Sprinkle anywhere in your garden for happy plants or give it to your favorite gardener for a happy friend.
