Default Re: Wormcomposting

Well I use the compost by just putting it on top of the soil. I grow in containers. I also use the juice prduced in the process by diluting in water and watering my plants with it. I feed the worms with old fruits, veggies, peels paper,carton, banana leaves and peels. Never put citrus in there. No meat or cooked food either. I do it in the basement and it doesn't smell at all. I will try to remember to post pics this week-end. Sorry guys, I always forget to... I have 3 rubbermaid bins full of them. I will give some to my daughter's school and probably sell a few pounds. They reproduce very quickly.

Just to dilute the juice first... That's about it. And you could use the worms as protein in case of a zombie attack! Lol!

Yes, every once in a while I toss a chunk of worms and dirt to the tilapia. I also occasionally spray worm juice and EM all around the farm in the BD style.
