Beekeeping is a great way of getting something for nothing.......
Green animals » worms
When I told my long suffering husband that I was getting 5000 new pets and he had to help me come up with names for each one, he didn’t know whether to laugh or cry!
Worms would have to be the best low maintenance pets available. They don’t need daily walks, don’t scratch the sofa, don’t require costly trips to the vets or get the huff if you go away on holiday for three weeks.
Managing a worm farm is a great job for kids, as they fulfill their fascination for getting dirty. They get their kind of fun; you get the end result for your garden.
Ready made worm farms can be bought from garden centres or hardware shops. They can be expensive but can save time by naturally sorting the castings from the worms. I have had one of these models for the last 5 years. It does a great job of using all kitchen scraps and producing great ‘worm wees’ and ‘worm poohs’.
Worms can be bought over the internet and can be posted to you, ready to go into your worm farm.
