5:42 What I'd recommend for easy harvesting...
Some surprising benefits (besides the obvious ecological benefits) I've gotten from keeping food scraps out of the trash and sink:
1. My trash cans do not stink or look gross.
-When I threw away food scraps in the trash, the trash can got pretty gross pretty easily. With food scraps going directly towards sustaining worm life, I rarely need to clean the trash cans.
2. My kitchen sink is ALSO easier to keep clean
-Using the garbage disposal for food scraps also was an extra chore that inevitably created more mess with the kitchen sink, so I often had to clean the sink more (can you tell I'm not into kitchen work? LOL)
3. I turned a chore into a delight
-I didn't realize that once I had a place for food scraps besides the trash, it meant I didn't have to take the trash out as often...not only that, but I got excited each time I had scraps to feed the worms! Instead of a chore, I was feeding a "pet" (or lots of little pets).
4. My plants love the worm tea and worm castings!!!!!
-I make worm tea, which turns out to be great, organic hydroponic liquid fertilizer for my plants (although admittedly, it's quick and sloppy passive hydroponics).
-I use the worm castings throughout my outdoor balcony garden too
