"Well Donna looks spring has sprung and summer is almost here. At least it is here in S.E. Texas. Just a quick comment using leaves as mulch and my observations over the last few seasons. They will decompose but at a slower rate as compared to a…"

Bill replied to Lance Waedemon's discussion Feeding bread and other starches to worms
"You will be fine. The main worry with starchy material is that it will heat up quickly. Just don't over do it."

Bill replied to Donna Soroka's discussion Gardening with castings
"Like you I dont have enough VC to just shovel it out.What I typically do is just mix in some with the soil as I add plants or if I am starting seeds. I mulch heavily with leaf litter and in addition to an increase of the native earthworms I am…"

Bill replied to Steve Thompson 's discussion which species should I use?
"If those are true night crawlers  I dont think they will serve the best for vermicomposting. We dont have them down in texas where I am located but we do have burrowing type earthworms and composting or surface feeding worms. I am not good with…"

Bill replied to tim strickland's discussion Such a thing as TOO old manure, leaves, or compost?
"I would think if it has broken down or composted completely I would think it would be ready for the garden or yard . You may also get some benefit mixing it with your VC and increasing the volume. There is absolutely no reason not use some as part…"

Bill replied to Paul Carr's discussion Worm hatching success
"Is the food you are putting in being consumed and are castings being produced? My belief is predatory critters are not normally a problem but if your worms are not multiplying then I would be more suspicious of bin conditions. Although you started…"

Bill replied to nachum hirschel's discussion photo idea
"I know I would like to see it when you have it available.As Ian suggested I would think you would want to go with a fair sized bin. Not sure what equipment and options you have but what would seem ideal is to be able to have a camera with flash tied…"

Bill replied to nachum hirschel's discussion goat manure
"You are quite welcome. It would make sense to have a system with a larger surface area. Good luck to you                                     Bill"

Bill replied to nachum hirschel's discussion goat manure
"Just curious as to the size and type of bin / bins you are using. I would think if it is aged and dry you could mix it in with some wet shredded cardboard and other brown type material and use it as bedding and feed veggie scraps to the surface area…"

Bill replied to John Yale's discussion Ant in my indoor Rubbermaid worm bin, My plan of attack
"Some how I just don't see ants setting up a colony in your worm bin. I could see perhaps having a few being introduced to a bin via your hot compost and perhaps maybe some wanting to visit the bin.If the bin itself is moist enough, it should be…"

Bill replied to Wormgal's discussion Worm Towers
"I would say that a worm tower would have to function much like any other VC system in that it would have to have similar enviromental requirements.I havent done a tower per se but at certain times as areas of my raised bed gardens are fallow I have…"
