Can-O-WormsCan-O-Worms is a three-story unit made from recycled plastic. The lightweight, three trays make it a snap to encourage the worms to move on up to a higher story, leaving their compost behind for easy use. The bottom section collects the "worm juice"; turn the spigot to drain it out for your plants. An instruction book and starter Coco-Peat-style bedding come with the bin. Measurements: 29" tall x 20".
The Worm Factory is the new high-rise in town. Made in the USA, this sturdy tower is similar to the Can-O-Woms, with a smaller, square footprint, and a lower price. An intriguing added feature is a worm ladder -- honest! -- to help the worms climb to the next level. A DVD guide, starter bedding, compost rake, and thermometer come with the Worm Factory. Measurements: 15" tall x 18".
