"I already gave you my method of getting it done in 14 days. But that isn't a composting method, it's a system input choice. I've heard juicer shreddings are also very fast. When you were asking about your…"
"Sure it's easy. Just feed nothing but frozen and thawed lettuce as it turns into sludge and gets consumed instantly. Done.
But is that practical, don't know as I don't do it. I do know that raw broccoli can survive…"
"In addition to Milt's info, just as an experiment I used very colourful flyer ads paper into a test bin. Had no issues, so some in newspapers would be even less. Cardboard is still my fav for it's aeration properties, but…"
"Cardboard!! Cardboard (or egg carton, drink holders) is great. Paper works, but for being stiff and keeping things fluffy nothing beats cardboard. I raid my buildings recycle bin :P.
For smell, hopefully it's smells more like…"
"Hey, yes sounds as if it's too wet.
For some most basic idea on living conditions (until you have more questions) remember they are animals like us.
The three basics, air, water, food.
For us, food you can do weeks without. Water you…"
"Neat. It's a gov site so I think their idea is to keep costs down to a min to attract people into doing it, not a bad idea at all. So instead of going for the flowthrough, it's on the ground and harvested by feeding one…"
"Hah, I hadn't seen the other posts while I was making mine (got called away half way through). Ok that's some bin, I think usually posters call things that size 'systems', 'bins' are the little guys you put under…"
"It's ok. While they tend to leave moldy things alone, it all gets eaten in the end. Having the rotting process already started means they'll get into them that much earlier, it's actually better that way (I store mine in…"
"Yea, that can be problem of the plastic bin systems. They are so good containing moisture you get wet castings.
Haven't use the system myself (although had the moisture problems with a DIY bin when I started out), but I've heard of…"
"Yeah, it's studies like that where you really need the details. If they are just looking at growth rates, they can discount other benefits. As a 'fertilizer', VC isn't that rich. So if it's compared…"
"That would be the 'easy roll'
As Thuan mentioned, you can just add water on the Inn. While the sides will get drier, the center core stays moist for ages (been on vacation for weeks no…"
"I'd recommend the Worm Inn also just because it's so easy to use (on top of other things). If you're willing to setup the stand for her (the most difficult part), it's almost fool proof. For being able to use a…"
"It's not unusual to get crawlers like that, especially in new bins. You can get more if it's damp (moisture droplets on the walls), less if it's drier.
But yeah, if it's only a few roamers and the rest are in the bedding…"
"HA!, well you're off to a good start then :). If you havent' checked out his video section yet, work getting a big mug of coffee ready and having a watch through them. Goes through basic setup, to why it works the way it…"
