Gardening with Ayden: Worm Farming

A worm farm turns organic waste into nutrient-rich fertiliser for your plants and soils but all I have are small bins for breeding worms, not those big professional ones for worm farming.

I breed earthworms so I can transfer them into my potted plants as they help increase nutrient in the soil and create better drainage.

Ayden has been watching me breed earthworms for some time. Today, he requested to have his very own worm bins but I decided to give him a clear see-through bottle container instead so he can see the movements of the worms.


These worms will move deep into the soil and Ayden will get to see their tunnels from the see-through container after a while. I will let him feed those worms twice a week. 

He is very happy to get his own worm container but is squeamish towards it. 

Watch him sing to his worms in delight but panicked when one of the worms tried to escape :lol:

I did not expect him to shake the container like that. Habis pening those poor worms! 8-O

This is the worms ONE day after transferring them into the container. They have adapted well in their new home.

    I would need some worms from you for my potted plants. ^^

    I think my kids especially the girl will scream seeing the worms. She is a bit of a phobia when it comes to insects especially spiders and worms.

      I am also afraid of spiders. Eeeeee.. no no no. I don’t want any spiders near me >_<

    Your blog postings are always interesting for me to learn something new. Now I learn that there are people who breed worms like this. I would like to read up more about this in the internet later. Thanks for sharing.

    You are so pro at planting your own food that you even breed earthworms, very good!
