wormsI’ve been spending a lot of time doing what most gardeners do this time of year, reading about gardening. 

One of my favorite subjects is composting.  I love that by composting I can make great dirt for the gardens and reduce our over all waste.

However, almost all the articles I have been reading have left bread off the list of ingredients that are okay to compost, especially whole grain breads.  Most worms, a key part of any good compost pile, like the grains.

So along with fruit and vegetable scrapes, coffee grounds, tea bags and egg shells don’t forget the stale bread.  The worms will thank you.
