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. If I can ever return the favor, please let me know.
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
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!

I thought I would share the process involved in building the Earthenricher bin, on this post.
The base is cut from kiln dried redwood. I have a professional woodworker do the cutting, drilling and routing. The parts for each base are cut from the same board so that the colors and grain match. The…Continue
Gave the RWs their last feeding 3 days ago. A new bin (RM) is ready and waiting for them.
In another 7 days or so after the RWs are real hungry I will put some ground food in a Zippered Mesh Laundry Wash Bag 12" x 15", and drop in in a corner. Got this idea on this site. Then after a day and a half or so, lift it out and put it in the corner of the fresh bin. Then add some food in another corner. Maybe I'll have to do this more than once.
I had been giving my worms things like old bean soup puree and split pea hummus from the back of the fridge and vegetable scraps tucked away for a few days. But then I read in a paper on vermiculture that they don't like really old rotting food; they feed off mainly the fresh layer of bacteria. And I figure my blenders get enough use with my coffee and food pureeing, so I don't blend for them. I used to cut up my scraps for more surface area, but now I just put in broccoli stalks, avocado…Continue

I'm new to worm farming. I researched the idea for some time now and thing it will work well for me. Our life style has us eating a lot of fruit and vegetable and I don't like the idea of just putting it down the garbage disposal. If I can recycle it to a better use that is what I want.
