Re: What did you feed your worms today?

I have managed to post some on the site before, but you need to make them a pretty small file size, less than a Mb for sure. There is a size limit, but i don’t recall what it was! Sry…

Re: First time harvesting

Harvested my bottom trays from each wormery last weekend, and limited worms and eggs in each, but those trays tend to be a bit on the damper side and should have been harvested 2-3 months ago so not really any food for them to eat in there anyway. New top trays added with cardboard and shredded pape...

Re: Lots of worms in sump...

How come you have so much liquid in the sump? Is everything above(food and bedding) very wet? Or is rain getting in. Covering the wormeries in rain is pretty important and in the winter my two wormeries stay in the garage. If there is a lot of rain( or big drop in air pressure) I find that the worms...

Yes, the castings that cardboard produces looks really good and doesn’t hang around as long as the shredded paper. Egg boxes are good also

Re: Another newbie here in wormcity

In my sumps i use an old bathroom sponge to act as a means of getting back up into the layer above. It’s a muddy mess now, and i don’t know if they use it, but it is a helpful tool to mop up any mess in the sump and deal with excess leachate

Re: Second tray...

My intention is to probably harvest those before starting a new tray in each, both w...

Threadworms

Quick question about this. There are a variety of worms in our wormeries and i assume threadworms are part of that group. I’m sure I’ve seen them in my bins and whilst I have no issue with them in there, the risk of the eggs being picked up either on hands or inhaling through dust is a bit of a conc...

Re: Feeding Worms

From memory bread isn’t great, it is best added in winter to generate a bit of heat as it decomposes if your bin is getting too cold, but i dont use bread, i think there are other reasons around limiting bread. Grapes are fine and fresh scraps are absolutely fine too as they will start to break down...

Re: Lid of wormery

My two wormeries, as a further comparison, sit better than those pictures. They kindly replaced a lid for me when my second wormery came down.

Re: What did you feed your worms today?

Soup simply hadn’t entered my mind!, they will have some kiwi and melon peelings along with mashed celeriac and parsnip later
