    much they eat Worms eat about half their weight in food everyday so a pound of worms could eat 3 4 pounds of food in a week The worms are feeding on the microorganisms on the food not the food itself Locating the Worms I hoped to find the worms locally but if you could see the 20 story office buildings that surround my apartment you d understand why I decided to just look on eBay I bought a pound of worms from a seller who had a good price and seemed the least crazy When the worms arrived I added them to the bin I had set up Progress so far Since then I have been giving the worms my banana peels tea bags and other food scraps each day and they seem to be thriving The bin really has no smell at all so that s good news The food I first added to the bin has already disappeared and compost is being formed Step by step picture tutorial to build a worm compost bin 1 The Apartment Compost Bin 2 Adding Worms One Month Later Maintaining the Compost Bin Three Months Later The Compost Results One Year Later Year of Composting 11 Comments April 6 2008 in D I Y Gardening About Rachel I write about practical tips that will help you simplify at home Connect with me on Pinterest and Twitter Previous How to Change a Car s Air Filter Next Popcorn a haiku Comments berrymomma says April 6 2008 at 10 26 pm Very cool You have inspired me Thank you Martha All the Dirt on Gardening says April 8 2008 at 8 52 pm Hi Excellent post about starting your worm bin Where did you get those great looking worms I ordered from two different sources and neither shipment had that many large worms in it Thanks for the photos and information Martha smallnotebook says April 9 2008 at 3 27 pm Thanks Martha I ll find the name of the Ebay seller and email it to you CompostGuy says April 26 2008 at 8 30 am Great article I love the look of your bin very atttractive My favourite line I bought a pound of worms from a seller who had a good price and seemed the least crazy Too funny lol Some kooky worm people out there eh Anyway good luck with your system sounds like you know what you are doing Regards Bentley Don says May 13 2008 at 7 45 pm Thanks great infro We used your site to help my daugther do her grade four science fair project Jennifer says July 11 2008 at 11 59 am I have been reading up on composting for several months now and am ready to dive in Could you email me the name of the Ebay seller you bought the worms from I am so excited to turn my kids leftover scraps into black gold smallnotebook says July 11 2008 at 10

  • Why We Rent Our Apartment - Small Notebook
    hear Much love to all berrymomma says March 29 2008 at 1 24 am That is very interesting My dh is a builder so we ve built and sold 2 homes already Now in our third home after trading up like you said we re ready to sell and build something smaller When we sell here if we sell then we could pay off the mortgage and build again and be debt free or nearly so But I can deffinately see your point It sure did feel nice to rent and be free of the deathgrip of a mortgage for those times we were building I m going to have my dh read this tomorrow Thanks Kelly says April 23 2008 at 1 43 pm Well put Owning a home is like having kids an assumption of what one does when grown no one investigates the notion much Helps to have a flexible landlord who will allow some customization like paint but I m in agreement Mike H says August 11 2008 at 2 03 pm It s interesting to hear your perspective on this My wife and I purchased our first home a little over a year ago It certainly is more expensive on an month to month basis but it s worth it to us to have the flexibility to do what we want with the house plant flower and veggie gardens etc Also one thing we did which adds more expense now but which will cut down on the long term cost of the home is to make extra payments on the mortgage We bought a much less expensive house than the biggest we could afford This has allowed us to make monthly payments of about 2 5 times the required amount As a result we should have the house paid off in about 5 years instead of 30 assuming we both continue working The long term advantage to this is that once the house is paid off our living expenses will drop drastically Admittedly I haven t compared this to the alternative of just investing the extra available money instead However having NEITHER rent nor a mortgage payment in a few years will provide us with a lot of financial flexibility once we get there smallnotebook says August 13 2008 at 11 53 pm That s a great strategy for a quick mortgage payoff Mike At some point when we decide it s time for us to buy a house we d like to payoff the mortgage quickly too so we can have the flexibility like you said Maria says February 17 2010 at 2 00 pm I m so glad to read something positive about renting My husband and I rented a home for years while we kept hearing others usually older folks sayind renting was such a waste Well we felt it was no waste at all to have a roof over our heads We had absolutely no extra to put back enough to

  • Carrot Cake - Small Notebook
    I made it as a bundt cake That s all I use these days I should just give away my other cake pans The topping is dairy free too It s 1 4 cup of coconut milk mixed with 1 cup of confectioner s powdered sugar Coconut milk is a great substitute for milk when you need something that is creamier than soy or rice milk Doug uses it when he makes waffles and I can t even tell the difference between those and buttermilk waffles It s a pretty good feeling to slice into this cake and see all the bright orange bits of carrot It s enough to make this cake seem good for you Add a comment March 24 2008 in Food About Rachel I write about practical tips that will help you simplify at home Connect with me on Pinterest and Twitter Previous Why We Rent Our Apartment Next Happy Easter Advertisements Hi I m Rachel I ll help you simplify your home Share this site Pin it Get new posts delivered to your inbox Subscribe by email For Winter How to Deal With the Keepsakes You Shouldn t Save Want to Simplify Start Here Getting

  • Nourishing Traditions - Small Notebook
    cook I usually care more about what it tastes like over the nutritional value Nourishing Traditions gives recipes chosen for both health and taste Most of the dishes require planning in advance It s not a dinner in 30 minutes book it s the kind of book that recommends cod liver oil taken daily It even has whole sections devoted to the benefits and preparation of cultured and fermented foods which you don t find very often I m willing to give it a try I ll let you know how it goes 3 Comments March 20 2008 in Food About Rachel I write about practical tips that will help you simplify at home Connect with me on Pinterest and Twitter Previous Happy Easter Next The Heritage Journal Comments Rose says August 28 2009 at 10 41 am I m loving your blog here so much information and unlike some simple living blogs and websites it s useable I m hoping to pick up the habit of having smoothies I have a blender that s never been used and wondered if you know of a formula which allows you to switch fruits For example 1 part water two parts fruit juice 2 parts fruit etc Thanks for keeping this blog for people like me I put a link in my last blog post about organising i hope this is okay with you Rose Rose s last post Organising Action Laurie says July 27 2010 at 2 09 pm Since I LOVE NT and I LOVE your blog I would really like to hear about things you ve found in NT that work for you if you get a chance in the future or if you ve written more already perhaps you could direct me to it I have just recently
