Indulge me dear readers, for I've gone out into the garden again for today's object and this one I most definitely do not have in the house...
Tucked away in the back of the garden, next to our compost heaps (yes we try to do our bit for the planet) we keep a few more pets. In addition to our cat, frogs, toads and newts, there's our wormery. And the little wrigglers are looked after and cared for just like every other critter (bar slugs and snails) that cross our threshold.
I'm not sure if it's clear from the photo, but the wormery has four compartments and a lid. The idea is to feed the worms with food related garbage in the top layer and then, when it's full, move it down. The added bonus is the watery fertiliser which collects in the bottom ready to be drained into a watering can via a tap and sprinkled onto the garden.
Nothing is wasted here.
