"I am very interested in the topic. could you please email me your results or how to access them? . I would really like some data on how dry worm casting can become before the microbes die off.
"It isn't. The stuff draining out the bottom is leachate, although it's pretty common to call it tea (leachate will be called tea, but real tea will never be called leachate). That can be just liquid coming from the rotting…"
"I am very new to this whole worm world thing. I have been trying to find out how long the liquid on the bottom of the bin that drains out is good for before you turn it into worm tea. I know that I have been getting so many different answers for how…"

I have a friend named Steve who had a beautiful garden. When my friend Joyce and I would go to visit and if he wasn't home we would just go in his garden and work. He had the biggest worms I had ever seen and every time I would find one I would hold it up for Joyce to see (forgetting that she was afraid of worms). Boy, she had the funniest yell. I couldn't help but show her every worm I found.
I enjoyed your pictures you posted. What kind of worms do you presently have?
Thanks for letting me know about the problem with the video upload. I just tried myself, it is finicky with avi's. Although, I had better luck with "windows media" files (i.e. .wmv) Are you on a Windows computer? If so you can use "Windows Movie Maker".. which comes free with windows.. to convert it to wmv. Or else, I can try to convert it for you so you can upload it.
