ye bro I feed them broccoli before about 3mnths ago. they seem to have eaten it, but didn't go crazy for it. I usually always put new items in with either avos or mushrooms. like everyone else has said, better to chop and freeze, and then give to worms. Just speeds things up. just have a variety of things to put in every now and again, until they build up a population.Damn so cool to see them all bunched up like that.
Hey man do you know if they like to eat broccoli? I just read on the internet that they don't like it that much, and I just added a ton of it xD. Im hoping that what I read was untrue, or maybe take out some of that broccoli and put something else instead.
I just fill mine up until it's full. Then I take off the top with the worms and start all over again. I basically just leave them alone and they do their thing. I had been looking at all these specialized worm structures online for DIY ideas but decided to just keep doing what I've been doing. I'll probably add another 30 gallon container though. 2 of those is plenty for my use and you still have to keep them fed so I really can't do more than that anyway.I think ill do the same,how many layers do u go before you harvest?
For the most premium EWC, feed your worms organic soil amendments. They will process it with no heat, retaining more beneficial compounds than traditional soil "cooking"
Never thought of just strait amendments. Id always feel the urge to chuck some vege in there, id feel guilty , seems like they'll be on a diet. But is probably worth a go.For the most premium EWC, feed your worms organic soil amendments. They will process it with no heat, retaining more beneficial compounds than traditional soil "cooking"
My vegetable go In the dump. Although to do put bocking 14 comfrey in my bin along with my ammendments etc. Go that route if you want high end castings. You won't regret it!Never thought of just strait amendments. Id always feel the urge to chuck some vege in there, id feel guilty , seems like they'll be on a diet. But is probably worth a go.
I just keep layering it til the bin is mostly full and then add another tier. I'm just using a Rubbermaid tote stackable bin system. Normally by the time I'm ready to add a third tier the first one is basically good to harvest.I think ill do the same,how many layers do u go before you harvest?
My worm bins have bedding I make from compost to which I add our household veg scraps. I always have 1 compost container that is specifically for worm feeding compost. Roughly every 2-3 weeks I'll add 1/2 -3/4 gallon of said "feed compost", bury it and come back 2-3 weeks later and do the same. I've been vermiposting for the last year and I'll never have to buy EWC or fish bait for the rest of my natural life! Roll on amigos...
Compost is insane for plants if at home. And I support all compost and recycling.
