"Thanks, Jim.  I'll try your 50/50 mix in a separate bin, not the flow through.  Because all these coffee grounds have got me thinking there must be a way to use them!"

"I use a jet harvester that does a nice job. http://kazarie.com/harvester.html    It looks like your compost harvester is similar.   One trick is to let the vermicompost dry out a bit before using the harvester."

Hello. I recognized your picture from Linkedin group about vermicomposting. I was reading the posts about the two day S.C. about business info on this stuff. I was thinking about going. It's to far for me though- maybe I'll get the book. Anyway nice to meet you.
