I tested the soil in my garden bed with baking soda and vinegar and it came out slightly alkaline, which I think is normal—previously I hadn’t realized the pH levels were so influential so this is good to know! (I’m very new at this.) I really enjoyed the tour on composting and it’s inspired me to get involved in vermiculture. I am renting a property in a very compact but uppity neighborhood and so creating an unsightly and possibly smelly composting bin would be discouraged. A bin of worms would be a small solution to divert food waste that is very doable. Plus, it’s definitely something to pull out at dinner parties.
