"Adam: not sure what is available in your area but several people, me included, use a mix of chicken feed (pellets) and rabbit feed (or just alfalfa pellets). I mixed them into my rotted juice pulp. In the US they cost ca. $14/20 Kg. You will have to…"

"Sounds good, Adam. The only problem I see (other than the usual) is that 330 pounds is a lot of weight to lug around."

Hi Adam, I am using 4 old bath tubs for my worms and it works really well. The liquid drains through the plug holes and is very easy to collect. I would like to move the worms to larger "premises" and have built tanks 10m x 4m each. They are outdoors but should be fine here in sunny South Africa. I could not help but notice that you don't chop your worm food up before feeding. I usually fill a bucket and then use a spade to chop. It helps to decompose quicker which makes more compost faster. Looking forward to chatting to you some more.

Hey Adam, I noticed you are on the goldie, I am down in Coffs. Do you have much of a market for your worms. I am just experimenting with our farm at the moment, trying to retro fit a small wheelie bin but having a few teething problems. I like the look of your black bins, did you make them or buy them??

Adam,
Thanks for your comment and advise. A couple of Qs if I may:
How many worms is one Kg? Where or who did you buy it from?
Boaz
