What did you feed your worms today?

Post by WillyWorm » Sat Jun 06, 2015 4:16 pm

I've fed mine cat food (which was in the cat bowl overnight), banana peel, a apple core, pear core, lettuce leaves, tomato ends, tea bags, ground egg shell and shredded letters from the bank (hope they enjoy those more than I did ? lol)
Please let us know what you have fed your worms so we can all get new ideas.

i obtained a bucket load of egg shells from a small local bakery, dried them out, milled them to granular powder like consistency and sprinkle a handful now and again onto the wormery.

after returning from holiday we discovered a few wrinkled sprouting potatoes, a few squishy apples and some yucky celery sticks which were all blended into a gloopy mass and fed to the wormery.

Today I fed my worms; some bananas which had gone black, some chopped up lettuce, the flower heads off of  a dozen roses (which were well past there best), a little bread, which had been dried in the oven. Then my neighbour gave me the bedding and sawdust from her hamster cage which I spread on top of the worms bedding. That's them fed for a few days.

Welcome Touran, is this your first bin? You will soon be running at full speed, my latest bin has been up and running less than two weeks and my worms are now munching on kitchen scraps. Good luck with your new family lol.

Your worms will survive for about a month between feeds however you need to feed them sometimes!! Don't be shy  8) tell us what gastronomic delight you have served your worms today.
