You can recycle newspapers, turn kitchen scraps into garden fertilizer, and raise a never-ending supply of fishing bait. All you need are worms and a place to keep them.
In a couple months you’ll notice extra worms in your hotel. Use a few for fishing or give some to friends to start new worm hotels. You’ll also see lots of black “soil” in the tub. Gardeners call these castings. You might call it worm poop. Whatever its name, it’s great for your garden. To separate worms from their homemade fertilizer, place the tub in the sun for 20 minutes. The heat and light will force worms deep into the tub so you can scoop out the top few inches of poop, uh, fertilizer.
