My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

garbage Blog Prompt: What would people think if they went through your garbage?

They would think that we eat a lot of junk food! We don’t have a lot of cooked food waste because I have a worm bin for most of the food and I also have been learning to cook in smaller portions so we eat most of what I cook. Any paper I have usually gets shredded and put in the worm bin also. Only meat scraps and containers go in the garbage. I have finally been going through a lot of my teacher stuff from when I retired two years ago and throwing a lot of old materials. It is almost a relief to finally sort through all of that.

Oh cool!! You have one of those worm farms. Do you put the worms in your garden? My hubby's grandpa use to have a worm farm for a business and on the weekends he would have to go there and count 50 worms for each box. He hated that. Even though he was a little boy.

@Tammy No, I use red wigglers and they would be eaten by the bigger earthworms. I have two plywood boxes (2'x2'x4') and have probably 100,000 or more worms. I sift the worm poop out in the spring and use it as natural fertilizer for all my gardens.
