I was looking for a place...like this on facebook....I enjoy reading about vermicomposting. I found a few places but it looks like hardly anyone chats or blogs. Can this site be hooked up to facebook? Just a thought... Cathy

hi Cathy, the pics are on my page, have you photos of your bin?

Yes carbons sorry. I freeze my fresh waste first to disapate the decomposing energy. Freezing speeds up the decomposition process.
And I give my bins a gentle watering. The evaporation causes it to cool much like the human body. I also leave the lid off and cover it with burlap.
Do you per chance use a thermometer to check the bin?

What I do is defrost it first. By freezing you have pretty much disapated the deomposing heat. Aged cow manure is a good summer food so is precomposted grass clippings. I mix a lot of paper with the grass, when the grass turns brown, I feed it to the worms.

Hi Cathy,
I googled Fort Madison and saw there is a Rodeo Park. Is there a stable nearby or a farm? I find $3.50 for 12 worms pretty expensive. Aged horse manure has EFs in them and if you don't mind poking around in it, you can collect your worms for free.

Darni,
the worms would be in AGED manure. So during rodeo time there will be only fresh manure. You can get several bags of them and aged it in your back yard or something and the worms should come when the manure is no longer "hot". From what I read on the forum, it will take a few months for compost to age.
