I come bearing gifts

With some credit left on Kohl's gift card, the worms got a great gift this past week: a snappy little food processor from Cuisinart.

Not that feeding wasn't a joy for me every time, but it may have been slightly harder on the worms. They don't have any teeth, and I am not the best food musher ever.

But using this new appliance, I was able to grind up four banana peels, several potato peels, strawberry tops, and coffee grinds into quite an interesting gooey mess that was far more palatable (and digestible) for the worms that what I had been giving them in the past- which was some very clumpy scraps with some pretty big chunks that I may have even had a hard time getting down.

In other news, I am going to get started this week on a business plan. I have some great plans for worms, recycling, and my financial future. If you listened to Joel Osteen this morning, you know the message was about setting goals and making plans to succeed.

Well, here goes!

We have a Juiceman juicer & I save all the mush & scrap for mine. It goes in the freezer in portions & when I'm ready to feed them, thaw & feed- voila! Anything bigger than mush or if I get a WAY overflow, it goes to my regular compost pile.

I have laid off a little on the processing lately, as my life has been pretty busy so I want the worms to take their time (even more than usual)....once I am reorganized again, I'm sure I'll go back to my mushing ways!
