I posted on FB that I finally found an affordable worm composter setup, someone of course chimes in with the "you can find instructions online to build your own". Yeah, I saw that. By the time I get all the materials together, I've spent more money and time than just ordering the kit. Just because you can build something yourself doesn't always mean it's a good idea.|
So I'm working up to a decision on a 3 tray worm farm setup. Pile up the materials, add worms and kitchen compost, harvest worm poo and worm tea (water that drips into a collection tray at the bottom) and add nutrient rich stuff to garden. A $50 setup is worth the effort. The same setup for $100, there was much hesitation. So I'll wait a bit, then decide if some of my hard earned money goes towards stackable bins to manufacture worm poo.
The lettuce remains untouched, I have hopes that the rabbits are not able to access the garden. Not only does lettuce make salads, it's also a gauge on if the rabbits have found a way around the fence.
