the flow-through-worm-crate

Hi all,I just started vermicomposting 4 weeks ago from a box of 12 wigglers and another of 12 euros in a small Styrofoam box. I built last Sunday a wooden bin out of 2 veggie crates found in the garbage, a few feet of corner wood molding and landscaping fabric. i posted pics to show how it looks like. I also made a support inside the bin to be able to put a shelf to put a bottle of frozen water to help controlling the temperature on toasty days.I counted the worms during the "transfer" 26…See More

so help with my worms please

I'm a newbe on worms, I had a kind soul who gave me a compost bin and a hand full of worms.

I have been following the advise on this page and giving all the scraps of uncooked vegetables and fruit and the egg shells.

I try to turn the stuff in the bin as much I can and I feed them a good quantity every sunday. (I'm a chef so have access to a good bit of scrapps and egg shells)

Every 2 to 3 days I wet very well the top so can drain through all the stuff inside.

Last sunday… Continue

The First Taber Gardens

My first experience with a garden was in my Granny's front yard. I have memories of this magical little space under a canopy of low trees. There were pathways between raised beds full of flowers. I must have been about 3 or 4 years old.  My memories of this garden remind me of things I've seen in a magazine. It was absolutely magnificent.



More recently in the past couple of years, I've been experimenting with growing things. I had the brilliant idea to grow…

flow though newbie

So I want to start and with a flow through bin. Does anybody have a link on the website to educate me on how to harvest the casings and what the spacing on the grate should be? There are lots of great picture, but how do I harvest?

Thanks
