Barter Bistro Will Be An Ongoing Barter Project
Barter Bistro – Project Wrap Up
Bartering for worms was a project far trickier than originally thought. I am an optimist, but thought at least I would get some nibbles on my post for 1,000 worms and be well on my happy little way to a composting bin with a budding worm ranch.
I have a composter that fell into my hot hands the first week, which Hubby has awesomely cleared out and organized room behind the garage—without asking I may add. It is not the optimal moisture for the worm ranch, but at least this location has shade without it being a low spot in the yard. Worms don’t like wet or full sun. (Neither do I).
I was not successful in bartering for worms these first thirty days and Day 16 through Day 30 were painfully uneventful. Worms in the composter and worm “volunteers” were redirected from another part of our yard to their new home this past weekend. We have five and one half worms in our composter. I have read that worms can recreate parts of their bodies if not too far gone, and when we were digging them up a calamity happened. My Dad offered that I can shovel up some of his flower beds to snag a few, and I just may do it.
I’ll close up the Barter Bistro for now, but will reopen it if I think up another “BIG” idea. I still wholeheartedly believe that bartering will be the future economy and would like to create a company to do so….eventually. Until then, I’ll keep a sharp eye for barter posts on Craigslist for interesting stuff and anything useful for my worm ranch as well as poke around in the composter to see how The Tribe of Five are doing.
Thanks for following Barter Bistro Project - The Quest for a Worm Ranch!!! I had a heck of a fun time!!!
