Step 4:
See the worms?

Lately, I've been really feeling the affect of the environment and I've come to the realization that we really need to be more Green! I first started with recycling more, then I started to buy more organic foods and items (when I can afford it), now I've decided to take it a step further and do something beneficial to the environment and to my garden! Over the weekend I created the above worm compost bin. All for under $20. Now I can throw all my food scraps (no meat or bones) in the bin and in 3-4 months I get "black gold". I figure I'm probably never going to become 100% green but I can definitely be more pro-active.

I also wanted to mention that one of my favorite artist Miss Black Apple will be on Martha tomorrow making one of her fabulous dolls that I can never seem to get a hold of because she sells out within 5 minutes after posting! Watch it, record it, find it on line, do what ever you have to do to check her out. You won't be disappointed!

"It may be doubted whether there are many other animals which have played so important a part in the history of the world as these lowly organized creatures."

P.S. Be on the look out for my Nest of Notions that will be posted here and in the shop!
