As for myself, I have some worms indoor that eat their weight (half to full weight) in leftover everyday. How much trash do you generate per day on average.
Those worms sound inviting!
Worms provide one of the finest fertilizers known to man...as well as 'worm tea'.
Worms are also possibly the easiest 'livestock' you can raise: no fencing, predator worries, etc.
For the cold northern winters, they provide an 'in house' solution to kitchen waste + composting.
Once you get started, you'll wish you had more 'waste' to get rid of.

It's a pain getting the tempurature up to 110f in 4-6 days if you wanna go intensive, but it melts and heats up just dandy being all extra broken down from defrosting. Soo many balls of frozen cabbage and strange dead body's of things like the hawk that got electrocuted, or a mountain of frozen failed to incubate eggs.
I think so, but then I am concerned about attracting rodents and such.

Aha! I have learned about anaerobic digestors in relationship to cow manure (I know how to build one even, but haven't). Thank you for the comparison, makes the decision to get some worms very easy!
