So if you aren't the Messiah does that just make you a very naughty boy (to paraphrase a certain British classic)? I have to confess that my worm farm was not great. I moved it to a much shadier spot about 3 months ago and had a friend give me a small handful of worms to kick start it again. I tossed some compost in 6 weeks ago and noted that there was very little action, but figured it was too cold for them to start breeding much. I had a good poke in it today and there is definite activity starting up again though. So I've tossed in a handful of weeds, some copra and covered it in wet newspaper and given them a few words of encouragement. Hopefully by Christmas it'll be humming along nicely.
