RIP Worms

My beloved worms have all died.

I have been on an emotional roller coaster over the past couple of months and have felt like I was just barely keeping it together. I was just doing enough to get by and anything above and beyond that just didn't happen. Unfortunately for my worms they were just not a priority in my life and after not "feeding them" for a long period of time they all just decided to up and die on me.

I failed at raising worms and I feel like a bit of a loser. I mean, worms are very easy to care for- they're worms. I do not want to discourage anyone who is interested in worm composting- it is very easy to do and it's pretty neat to have worms eat your leftover fruits/veggies. The upkeep is pretty minimal- I just failed to even do the minimal amount of work to keep them alive.

So, rest in peace worms. It was fun while it lasted.


  1. I'm sorry to hear that. Why not add a little moisture? Maybe there are cocoons left in the bin.

  2. I tried adding moisture a few weeks ago and it didn't help. I then went on a panicked search throught the bin to try and find worms and only came up with five. I finally gave up this week when I couldn't find any worms.

    Very sad...

  3. Well that is sad. But the five will thrive and multiply in time. ;-)

    Why not try two bins next time? At least if something goes wrong, half your worms will survive.
