Feeding our Worms

“Environmental chefs
here’s a recipe for you’'
to fix from scratch
to mix a batch
of Compost Stew”.
That is the main stanza in the book “Compost Stew” by Mary McKenna Siddals.  We read it at story time this morning then we made our own compost stew.
We started with our compost bucket that sat over the weekend.  It had banana peels, egg shells, coffee grounds and a few tomatoes from this morning.
              The children took turns stirring it and crushing the egg shells.
                    Then we added it to our worm composter.
Covered it with paper again and sprayed it with water till it was good and moist.   We’ll check tomorrow to see if the worms have been working through their meal.
