This is my Mum’s ‘Can O Worms’ wormery. I went to visit it (and her of course) last week-end, and felt it my duty to investigate, as my own wormery is quickly turning into a bit of a swamp.
It does seem like a better design. It comes with stackable tiers, so that older compost is separated from the kitchen waste you’ve just added to it. Consequently it has a chance to be properly ‘processed’ by the little worms without being overrun with liquid, which somehow seems greatly reduced in comparison to mine. Here is the can o worms minus the top tray:
Definitely looking more compost like! I am wondering whether this might be a better option for us too. Mum does cosset her worms more than I ever did though. She even has a bag of worm treats stashed away for them!
Anyway, until I have a spare £60 for a replacement home for my little wiggly friends, I will carry on draining the worm juice, just so they don’t drown, which may improve their condition somewhat.
