My worm farm which is just by the chicken coop and compost bins.
Photo shows plate of scraps for chickens, blue bucket for worms, black bucket for sheep.
We never seem to have enough scraps to go around. As I am preparing meals, peelings and scraps are sorted into - food for the worms, the compost, chickens, goat and sheep, and peelings for the doggie stews..
My girls as I fondly call them.
The worms are fed fruit and vegetable peelings, tea bags, coffee grinds, egg shells, toilet paper rolls, paper towel rolls, and newspaper. The worms eat their body weight each day and are very easy to keep.
You don't even need to feed them everyday - mine usually get a feed twice a week.
For little effort I am rewarded with a wonderful harvest of vermicast (worm poop) Such a treasure to put into the garden soil. PLUS I gather the worm wee and dilute it with water to feed the garden plants. WONDERFUL stuff!

Christmas Mouse on the Mantle AKA (Elf on the shelf)
Serve Mr Mouse right! He looks stuffed. The tin was full with a dozen Christmas mince pies and this is what I found when I opened the tin to sneak a pie... I was asked a question of what was I doing at 3am looking for a Christmas mince pie....BUSTED!
