It takes a while for a worm bin to produce enough worm castings to put out in the garden; but in the mean time the bin is constantly producing "worm tea," which plants love. The "worm tea" keeps potted plants happy, even though their roots are confined. I advise leaving the spigot on the Can-O-Worms open all the time with a collection vessel under it. That way the "tea" is constantly dripping out, and does not fill up the sump. With the dollie, you can put the vessel under the spigot on the dollie, so the whole thing rolls around together.
Although at first it might repulse you a bit to keep rotting vegetable matter around -- especially in the kitchen -- I have found that my initial repulsion has given way to fascination with the transformation going on inside the bin. Like a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly inside its cocoon, your vegetable detritus transforms into sweet, rich earth inside your worm bin. I have come to view my worms as miracle-workers.
And here is a tip that you won't find anywhere else: to keep your worm bin from emitting any unpleasant odors, be sure to put plenty of parsley stems in the bin, along with the rest of your vegetable debris. It will do you good to eat plenty of parsley leaves, and the stems will keep your worm bin from smelling.
I recommend the Can-O-Worms over any of the other worm bins I researched, because of its sturdy construction and the fact that it is made from recycled plastic. That gratifies my environmental conscience. However, I understand that in cold climates people who want to keep worm bins must keep their bins indoors, because the worms cannot tolerate freezing temperatures. People in cold climates who want to keep a worm bin outdoors can get a special heated worm bin from certain Internet sites.
I have kept compost most of my adult life. Although I still would prefer to keep a traditional compost pile, the restrictions of apartment living -- with close neighbors and little yard space -- render a compost pile out of the question for me any more. Other apartment dwellers will find the Can-O-Worms the ideal alternative to traditional composting.
The worms we purchased (from a friend) came with a square version of the worm farm. We were happy to have purchased this version as it is much larger and user friendly. Best of all it too is made from recycled materials! We even used the packaging for worm bedding.
I'm not sure I would recommend storing this system indoors as we are currently battling vinager flys. These flys do not harm anything in the shed, but we would not like them flying around inside our home!
