seperating worms from the castings

Comment by Francois Lemmer on December 25, 2010 at 9:58am

from 50 worms to where i had to load the worm food in a wheelbarrow to feed the worms

the vermicastings and vermitea i brewed were to me  a very vital link in my system.

does wonders for the plants in the system

never added anything else to feed the plants.

only other i added was iron and lime

My experience with compost worm’s.
2006 i started with worms for fish food
I went out and bought a 500 gram container of compost and 50 worms.......
I had an old plastic 250l drum standing around so I took this and drilled drainage holes and I had my 1st worm farm.
I started my worms in this and feeding them all our kitchen scraps and horse manure.
This bin did very well and I kept on splitting the worms as they got more.
During this time I had my worm kills too but ....learning.....the do’s and the don’ts
Leaving an 80 litre worm farm standing in the sun and going on holiday....
Bad mistake....smelt like.....
Some of my tests I did, very silly but lessons well worth.
I do designing and all my old drawings needs to be destroyed.
I started a worm farm feeding the worm this and newspaper only and.....
The worms love paper and you can build and keep a population of worms in paper only.
This I found is a no hassle way of increasing your numbers of worms.
Keep paper moist and they break it all down.
But saying this, from those couple of worms I now have a Medium size worm farm.
Not in size but in worms and cocoons.
Worms hungry and ready to eat..... Cocoons ready to hatch....100....s little worms
Starting the cycle’s again.
