"I have covered these with stainless steel screen to prevent mice getting in winter. It will be interesting to see how I am going to harvest. "

Mesh Trash can harvester ideas

I am thinking of buying mesh trash can similar in the picture from dollar store. Any ideas how I can turn that into harvester? Can I use bicycle pedal parts to revolve it for fast action? I know that there are many members who are good in this things. Please help!See More

"I had chopped bucket type harvester, but it was taking too much space in the garage, so I prefer flatbed types better! Liked Garbage Guru's harvester. I have seen contractors using similar ones for soil. Eagerly waiting for pictures!"

hey, i saw your message on a discussion asking for worms. i think you should ask your neighbors one by one, one of them was sharing worms, and another one is cathy nesbitt, a very experienced person on worms, so you're very lucky. if you live in countryside, you can see piles of manure (horse or cow are the best i guess). they are full with composting worms during moisture temperatures. they seem more brownish because they feed on manure, but after some weeks they should get used to eat kitchen compost and soon get reddish colors. after a generation their eating habits will change completely to kitchen scraps, so they'll consume more, as I've read on internet. read bentley's website throughly. good luck.

GREAT wooden box design. I wish I had the room to make something like that! I really like the idea of the angled shelving. Wish I had thought of that.

looks good and the grate bars are further out than mine are so should work good on the 2 flow thru's. You still may have to reach in there and help the vermicompost down specially if wet as it compacts quite a bit.
