Vermicomposting, worm bin, composting with worms community and forums
Well, I'm impressed again. And that may be therapeutic! LOL So I was feeling tired yet restless and so failing to take a nap, I decided to check on my worm bag. I hadn't really bothered it since my Sept 15th post stating that I thought I had killed them. In that post I fed them a large meal of a block of frozen veggie scraps.
I felt the outside of the bag it it felt characteristically dry and crunchy, again fueling my direthoughts of doom, what have I done panic. I of course unzipped…Continue

After spending weeks at a time at BF house helping with projects , and then another week gone for Labor Day weekend, and then working like a crazy bastard at all of my jobs and neglecting my home,.... I though I had killed my worms.
My bag felt dry on all sides. and it was crunchy. The food I had put in from the freezer had either been eaten or dried out on top. I began to mourn ( mostly I cursed in my head all of my friends and BF for keeping me away from home....) and I started to…Continue

I went to a demonstration at our community center where a guy showed an anaerobic composting system called Bokashi. Using microorganism impregnated bran flakes, it basically pickles the food scraps by allowing the target microbes to penetrate the food in an environment where it outcompetes other organisms in a tightly enclosed bucket.
After a month of pickling, the scraps are then burried in the ground or fed to other organisms which break the scraps down into compost in a…Continue

One, a plastic shoe box with tiny holes( my former worm box) is spawning nicely, has high humidity and I see no problems. The rest of the oyster mushroom pack that I got I decided to try to go ahead and fruit it, so I soaked it in water, put it on a bed of coffee…Continue

Well I used to have more time, but now I have six jobs and no time, why isn't the money flowing in like a flood?
Anyway, I still don't feel free with my limited cash and I want to restart my vermicomposting. i have the louvers to make a Awesome aerated worm bin but I'm skeptical about it still. Then I saw an instructable with a flow through bag made of sewn felt and it seemed to work for folks, but it required building a wood frame and I don't have the tools. Nor do I have an Ikea…Continue
