Rubber-maid bin to Mega-Inns

My goal at this point is to build my red-worm population.  I have moved all my worms from an original rubber-maid type bin and now I presently have three Mega-Inns.  I have about 5 gallons of material in each at present and it has been about a month and a half since the big move.  I started with approximately a pound of worms in each Mega.  The worms have adjusted a bit and the material has settled in.  This past week I added a bit of…

Yellow Worms

I moved my Worm Factory 360 outside this weekend and harvested a couple of gallon bags of compost. In the process I noticed a few worms with mostly yellow bodies. Never came across this before. I also notice a yellow "scum" on the leachate that was collected below the Worm Factory. Anyone have any experience with anything like this?

Thank You Rocco!

I had to reach out and say a public THANK YOU to Rocco!  Because of you, Rocco, I am now the proud union owner of the Wiggles Local 101 in Omaha Nebraska.  I was so excited I had to start my own blog, which I just put online tonight.  Thank you Rocco for the AWESOME union logo and for giving me the inspiration to get back into blogging.

Cocoon Bin

Yesterday I pulled out at least 50 cocoons to set up a separate cocoon bin.  I'm going to raise the temperature to persuasively encourage the cocoons to hatch and not hibernate.  It's too cold here to get more shipped in so I'm going to make my own.  I feel empowered!  LOL

Whoo hooo

I'm kinda excited.  I just got added to the Vermicomposting Map and checked it out.  Yep, I'm there!  And there is someone else from my city doing it too. I could barely contain my excitement!  LOL  So I sent her a msg saying Hi Neighbor! 

Had to share!
