    Strange that they don't eat it. However I had the same problem with my Grandmother. I think she felt it was dirty because I make my own compost and she saw me harvest the food so, she know's it came from my garden. Im not sure because I did not push the issue however its my need to understand that brought me to this conclusion.

    55 or older…Senior? egads, I'm 58, wellllll, that explains alot!!!
    haha, well, AARP does have the best deal on car insurance hands down, joined that at 50… ok, I'll get back to garden talk, lol

    the problem I have when I give too much food to the wormies, maybe Not a problem :), but they then reproduce like crazy, extra food means extra sex! haha, so instead of a 'worm bin', she would have a 'sex bin', ar ar ar. I don't really make my worms 'work' to eat it, I do blend and dump, so I get more worm poop faster for my raised bins

    Love the City Picker planters they are perfect for small spaces. I put them on top of crates to raise them up off the ground for easy reach

    If you live in LA there is no way you can use copper in your garden! Those metal scrapers will smell that a mile away. They also love cutting wires from old TVs that are put on the curb. Thus, wasting the whole TV because most people don't know how to change the cord. lol

    Have you Grown Turmeric before? How did that work out for you? And on the container composter Couldn't you just take the container before you put in any compost, and cut the front and back panels out of the container, then replace it with Screen, Nylon Screen and then put your start up of compost in the container?  Wouldn't that work for getting more oxygen into the compost?
