When did you start composting with worms?
August 19, 2013
How were you introduced to vermicomposting?
browsing the internet looking for different kinds of fertilizer and worm tea was one that came up and I thought I got on a some kind of a "drug site". I never heard of worm tea, or vermicomposting, or worm factories or even raising worms. I was not sure what I was actually getting myself into, or even if I should click onto the site (not knowing anything like this even existed).
What do your worms like to eat?
I plan to feed them certain kitchen scraps and my paper and cardboard that I shred along with coffee grounds and tea bags. I will treat them like they are a vegan. I am very new at this.
What kinds of worms do you have?
red worm - red wigglers and two others that I can't remember what they are called. One is a european something.
What worm bins do you use?
DIY - one where they can migrate up and it collects the liquid in the bottom
How many pounds of garbage do your worms recycle each week?
I don't know, I just started worming
About Me:
Live in Reno, Nv on Mt. Rose. I am having to keep my worms in the house, because the nights will get too cold for them in the winter. The days will be too cold for them in the winter. I am doing this for my garden that I started 2 yrs ago. My garden is 3/4 of an acre. I just got my worms from an older guy in down in the valley who has been doing this for 40 yrs. I have a DIY bin. I really hope this works, because I really hate to see anything die. If I screw up and end up killing these wonderful worms, I will feel just awful. I am one of those people that will see a spider in the house and put it back outside. Everything has a reason to be on this earth, just not necessarily in the house. Actually, doing the worms was a very hard decision for me, because I knew that if I decided to did it, I would have to keep them in the house. Something that I always put back outside, I would be making a home for and feeding "in my house". That was very difficult decision for me to make.

Hello Teresa!

Welcome to the world of the worms!  I'll have to catch up on my reading of your post since I was traveling all day yesterday.  Looking forward to hearing from you.
