    Been at it about 9 months and have castings in mixes and 40 pounds on hand. They do a great job on trim. Odorless and surprisingly unmessy.

    Worm farmers AND bokashi composters, do you put meat in you bokashi then feed it to your worms?
    Seems like a no-no but if its organic compost then maybe.

    I use 25 G fabric pots loaded with aged horse manure, and amended with kelp meal, neem cake, Cascade Minerals basalt, malted barley flour, spent mushroom substrate(horse manure/vermiculite), oyster shell flour, and meal worm frass, load with 3,000-3,500 red worms, then cover with straw. This is my standard procedure for making EWC. However, since I am fortunate enough to have approximately one dozen- 3 cu ft bags of meal worm frass on hand, I am currently aging a 25 G fabric pot filled with mostly frass, some canna scraps and stems, straw, and I will amend with the standard inputs before populating with 3k-3.5k red wigglers. As the horse manure has produced results that blow away even the best bagged castings that I have purchased, I am interested in finding out what kind of quality results are obtained from using the frass as the bulk of my starting material, rather than the horse manure. If anyone has any experience doing something similar, I would be interested in hearing about it. Thanks.
