Re: Sunflower husks

Hi sounds like things are going well, well done. Used coffee grounds (UCG)are fine for worms. UNUSED coffee is very acidic and will injure your worms. UCG are just outside of the perfect PH7 but the other scraps and paper will balance that fine. I like to feed a diverse range of food. Worms like us ...

Re: Fussy Eaters

Hi Sounds like things are moving in the right direction well done. Wet bedding won’t stop worms eating and it’s easy to add more dry shredded material to dry it up.

Re: What did you feed your worms today?

I’ve been away in my motor home for a week. On one site there was a lot of wind fall apples. I gathered up two large carrier bags full. Now we are home we will prepare the best of the apples for pie fillings and Freeze for later use, the rest plus the cores and peelings will go into the worm food ca...

Re: Fussy Eaters

If they eat the dry food it tends to indicate there is something they do like in the current offerings, and the two reasons I suggested earlier are the most likely reason.
Please do let us know how you get on, that way we can all learn.

Re: Fussy Eaters

Hi, worms view anything as food. What we call bedding, browns, carbon or cardboard is all food to a worm. It is unusual for them to prefer to eat cardboard to more nutritious fruit and veg. You did not tell us what you have been feeding. Also did they eat the dried food which came with your bin? The...

Re: What did you feed your worms today?

We used to have a fish pond, long gone after the local cats had a fish supper. Anyway the wife found a long forgotten 500g drum of fish food in the shed. The worms loved it, I just hope they don’t all go down to the sump for a swim.

The worms are loving what was left in the bag after straining out the juice. You can also chop or mince the craba...
