Squirmers

Filed under: Gardening — site admin @ 9:00 am

The worms continue to be happy. I noticed on my top bucket of one of my stacked bucket system that a few worms had made it to the top. I had been filling the bucket way too fast with kitchen waste and it was filled to the rim. There was simply no more room to add so I stopped. Now there are some people who say you can over feed your worm bins, and if they stink, they’re overfed. I was worried that mine would start to stink out in the hallway and I would have to get rid of them. I lucked out and about a month after I stopped adding anything to the top bucket there are worms near the surface – and the height has dropped about three inches. It looks like it will be worked over after all. Now it’s time to start peeking to see when the bottom bucket is ready for “harvest” of the worm castings.
