@shonuff nice one ! u cant beat home inputs and vermicompost is one of the best imo

get your balance of greens (Nitrogen) and browns (carbon) correct for worm factory heaven - this can be a little tricky but by volume if u go 50-50 u wont be far off.. a layer of browns, an equal depth layer of greens, repeat..

Worms treats for super happy worms: sprinkle in some malted barley powder

and finally my Brucey bonus tips:

To rapidly increase the population and create worm brothels of unimaginable intensity and density (until youve seen it yourself its hard to believe!) place half an over-ripe avocado on the top layer face down, skin on, stone removed...Β 

it contains worm-viagra. Selenium i think its called if stoner brain has the right channel.. rarish but found in avocados in abundance.. soon the worms will move in and breed like.. well worms ! rabbits aint got nothing on worm reproductive capabilities

melon also is a great favourite of worms.

ok a couple more whilst i can think...

use the juice u drain off as microbe boost and npk booster for your plants.. dilute to taste πŸ˜‰ ... kidding.. more like a tablespoon per litreΒ 

add the type of things a cannabis plant would like.. such as old bananas (potassium), old cannabis leaves and stalks (perfecto!), grass clippings (nitrogen), dead leaves (great for carbon and microbes) and use a broad variety if possible.. this way ensures all nutrients and macronutrients are coveredΒ 

avoid inorganic things, tiny bits of plastics, too much shredded paper or carboard at one time, plasticated tea bags and obvious stuff like that.Β 

You can put coco, or peat, or potting soil etc through a worm bin to inoculate and enrich itΒ 

thats it for now.. im sure others can add their experiences and tips

happy worm and soil farming Smile /p>

Β 

Time to pop some more beans πŸ˜—

Heyo @shonuff, I store a garbage can full of leaves in the fall because it can be hard to find browns in the middle of the winter without digging though piles of snow. I use it to layer with our kitchen and cannabis scraps, by the way apparently they don't like oranges or onions so I imagine that means citrus fruits and members of the allium family also. Good luckΒ 

We just smiled n waved sittn there on that sack o seeds

Ohhhh worms πŸͺ±

Congrats on the new addition πŸ™ŒΒ 

All the basics have been covered here! Great advice already.

They will also eat any cotton clothes you've finished with, socks, t-shirts....anything.Β 

Try and stay away from like food box 'cardboard' they like they real stuff with the layers, I'm sure some of my worms don't like compost, they just hide out in between the layers staying freshπŸ˜‚

From my own personal experience....grapes didn't go too well. Ended up restarting my whole bin, which was tragic. Restarted though and I think I'm about ready to add the second layer now.Β 

Good luck, look forward to following your progress πŸ€—
