|Worms composting. If you stare at this image long enough, you will see the pouting face of Donald Trump.|
I can think of no better way to personally commemorate the end of Donald Trump's presidency than to write about worms and their poo. Last summer, I sought to buy a composter for my vegetable garden. While looking online, I discovered worm composting.
It seemed simple enough:
1. Put worms in a bin of garbage.
2. Worms eat garbage.
3. Worms excrete castings as compost.
After much browsing, I bought a 'worm hotel' - a series of stackable tray bins with mesh bottoms which I furnished NOT with casting couches, but with garbage and shredded paper. One hundred hotel guests arrived by mail in a sack from Uncle Jim's Worm Farm in Pennsylvania. I made a little sign, "The Wiggle Inn", and waited for compost to happen.
