Red worms
« on: September 30, 2013, 02:51:22 PM »
I dumped a bunch of used coffee in the red wiggler bin.  They seem to have all disappeared... too wet I suppose.

Can't find the friggin' things!  They didn't escape the bin, but there's only 50 in the bottom and god knows where the rest are.  They're not digging through the coffee grounds.  I started with like 500!

I added more paper to balance the wetness.  Hopefully that helps.  Going to add more worms; I think I may have killed most of mine when some potato fermented and alcoholized the bin.  Worms dislike wodka.

Does anyone know wtf I'm doing?  Because I sure don't.  Five dollars I don't have says Weaze or Cap knows how all this crap works; lord knows they know everything else.

goto a mushroom farm and obtain their spent compost.  You will
have good results feeding worms that.  Coffee  grounds only in
small limited amounts. Do not get the worm farm too wet.

Ooh.  If I could get some oak or maple logs, I could use shiitake mushrooms for that.  In fact, I could use all kinds of mushrooms (oyster shrooms!) to compost cardboard and paper rapidly...

Good idea mate.
