The worms are still kickin it in their Wriggly Ranch. This is the top layer which is mostly chopped up newspaper and food.
We keep the worm food in a plastic bin in the freezer. Freezing the scraps helps speed up the breakdown process of the veggies. It keeps our kitchen from getting smelly and bug filled. We don’t have a regular feeding schedule for them. It all depends on our scraps. They love mangoes, and I’ve seen them playing in the toilet paper tubes.
Here’s a little dude hanging out in an old coffee filter and grounds. We drink a lot of coffee, so we don’t feed it all to the worms. There’s a green bin for all the stuff that doesn’t turn in to worm food.
This is the fabulous second layer from the top. This is where I see the most worms. It’s been kind of slow going. I think I could feed them more often. We’ve never had to rotate our levels yet.
This is the very bottom layer, full of fabulous worm droppings. I poke around at it, but have never made tea. If anyone has recommendations let me know. Here’s what I did with my juice.
There are a couple of dead guys, but not too bad. I sprayed the hose in there to dilute it a little. Next I poured it in to a watering can. I think I watered it down again and dumped it all over the plants. There has to be a more precise method, but nothing seems to be unhappy with their worm juice bath. A while back we found a Wriggly Ranch on the side of the street. If anyone wants it, and lives in the Bay Area it’s up for grabs. One worm bin is enough for us.
