I’ve been trolling a lot online to find information on whether you really can see worms through the side of a clear-ish plastic container. I could keep one in the dark of a classroom cabinet, and that would keep the worms happy. But I’d like kids to be able to see the critters along the sides. Trouble is, most containers that you can drill holes through appear more frosty than “clear,” meaning students wouldn’t be able to see the worms anyway. If that’s the case, we might as well get a dark container that I can keep either on a counter, or inside a cabinet. I liked this site because it includes updates at month one, 3 months, and one year. http://smallnotebook.org/2008/04/06/how-to-make-a-worm-compost-bin/
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
To all my followers, thanks for watching! I’m aiming to post more often this year with great ideas, and stuff our gardening/cooking elective is actually doing. I’m using a California Ag in the Classroom Specialty Crops grant to introduce foods — raw and/or cooked in some way. We will be converting some boxes used for air conditioning parts into planters for veggies. That’s just a glimpse. This blog was viewed about 1,600 times in 2013. The Internet’s reach potential is amazing! Happy 2014!
