Does it make sense to create compost when you don't garden? I don't know, but I'm doing it.
Worms, but no garden
So, I'm not gardening.

Now, gardening is much more challenging, and I am able to enjoy the outdoors any time, whether that means sitting on our deck, talking long walks through the woods, or strolling on the beautiful empty beach. Working full-time, with limited time to myself, I really don't want to spend any of it gardening.
Why create composting if you're not gardening?
- It reduces waste. We don't have organics recycling here, and it feels really wasteful. Most of what can go in the organics bin can be used as worm food.
- The worm castings (compost created by worms) will improve the soil for all the plants already growing in our yard, including the raspberry bushes that Allan is trying to re-establish.*
- Working with worms, creating this miniature ecosystem, just appeals to me. I want to try it.
