Worm Bin/Vermiposting

Okay, this post is dedicated to all of you hardcore gardeners out there :) Below is a worm bin that we've had going for a number of months. Except for the handfuls of volunteer seedlings that showed up in one raised bed, this bin has been left alone. Opened it up tonight, and this is what I found: black gold! Look at all of the compost worms!

This is our simple set up: a simple storage bin, with holes drilled in the bottom. We put moistened coir in the bottom, add worms, then kitchen scraps, weeds from the garden, etc.
I like to place it INSIDE of my raised beds, though, so that the "worm tea" actually drains into the garden soil.
