Today I uploaded some pictures from the first tray of the worm factory. I am not sure if I should add another tray with more food or just let them munch on whats left in the tray. Any suggestions?

Update on the worm bins

Late last night I checked on both of my worm bins. The older bin is do great! The worms are fat and happy and saw some stuff in the bedding/vermicompost that looks like eggs!

Checked my worms and they are doing so well

Its a good day...

They ate over a 1 lb and half of food wastes in 5 days!

Had some extra time today

Over the last couple of days I have been to busy and to tired to feed and clean up my worm bins. Today I cut some more bedding and took all of the out of date or going out of date fruit and vegetables and stuck them in the blender and then added some bread and coffee ground to suck up some of the liquids.

After getting everything prepped I fluffed up some of the old bedding and checked the state of the worms. I then added the food and more bedding.

It looks like my worms… Continue
