Meet Our New "Pets"

These little guys live in boxes under our kitchen sink and eat our produce waste. Yes, I am serious.

It is called vermicomposting and you can read more about it in my article in the April issue of Chicago Parent Magazine.

Ellie and Brendan love it and I have to confess that I find the whole process pretty fascinating myself.

My kids would be totally in to this. Perhaps we should look in to this for our vegetable garden adventures this Spring.

The scientist in my family will be pretty excited to check this out this weekend!

I did this in college one year with my roommates- it was great. I'd love to do it again - good for you!
