Worm Bed

Worm bed you ask? Well, Kid-O has grown fond of worms since we moved into the new house. She asked us if we would look up how to build a worm bed. So we did, come to find out it is pretty easy. Kid-O then asked us to build one for her.
When she discovered that she could then sell her worms, she decided to invest in this project. She purchased the peat moss ($9.95), and will be purchasing her starter worms (approximately 1000) for $18.00. Within two months, she can begin to harvest her worms, selling them 25 for $2.00. We will see how this business adventure goes. We figure we are close enough to the river that we can find convenient stores to purchase the worms.

As you can tell, we are not finished yet. We still have to dig out the ground down about 12 inches, then fill the bed with newspaper, dirt, peat moss, egg shells, etc, and off we go. Can you say FUN?

I think it's cute. It will give her a good experience in the area of business. Worms would not be my first choice...but hey, lots of people fish so there will be a need. I'd say she's already off to a good start.
