    It's very easy! You can build bins out of plastic tubs and keep them under your kitchen sink. Tip: measure your kitchen sink and buy an appropriately sized tub. It's not as easy the other way around! :D

    Here are some good resources:

    This question is why I signed back on to HC. I knew it'd be here.

    Anyway I need to step into this cheaply because I've all but blown my garden budget for the year. I'm thinking of picking up red wigglers from a bait shop. Maybe two tubs of 36. Anyone see a problem with starting out that small?

    The few online worm farms I have looked at have worms priced around $40 a pound.

    This is freaky how close my brain works to HC after so long. Aquaponics is part of what renewed my interest in starting vericomposting. Worms as a feed stock for the fish. That and the compost tea for containers...
