Juicer Pulp

Started a juice detox diet and am trying to figure out if anyone else has used their pulp effectively? I normally use apple/banana/tea bags/ pears in my food processer and then frozen which has worked wondefully in my indoor plastic bin. I am just concerned that I will have problems with the citrus pulp. Any ideas, suggestions, and or snide remarks are welcomed, Thanks!

Sluggish slugs...

I built my own soldier grub bin and fully insulated it to try and keep the worms active for as long as possible this winter.  Since I live here in East Texas the winters are pretty mild and I had read where some had had success in keeping their worms active over winter.  Well not so much so for me.  I "feed" them practically every day table scraps and during the warmer season the bin is pretty much ready to accept more scraps daily but even with the insulated bin the worms have pretty much…

How hot is the pre-rot?

I'm a couple weeks into using my FT. I've managed to build the depth up to about 8" using unrotted feedstock and bedding, but had to stop because the FT is now at 80 deg F. in a 60 deg. F basement. In response, 36 hours ago I loaded a 35 gallon RM with material that I know from experience in a large outdoor pile would acheive 150 deg F in a day or two.

How hot do you think the pre-rot in a 35 gallon RM bin get?

FAIRBANKS -

Did you ever have a nifty idea that you thought was yours alone, just to find out that it is common practice? I thought I was the Alberta Einstein of horticulture when I started setting up mini-wormeries about a decade ago, only to open this month’s issue of BBC Gardeners’ World and find a long article on them. Maybe it was the…

My worms are slugs!

Hello, everyone!

 

I've always said that if you can't obsess about a new hobby, why have hobbies at all. I'm in the "obsess" mode with vermiculturing right now, with the unfortunate side effect of having done a few things that I wouldn't have done had I been a bit more patient. Unfortunately, I read about Uncle Jim, pre-rotting, "homemade manure" from shredding feedstock, and flow through bins after I ordered my 2,000 red wigglers. As a result, when my worms arrived I…

Free horse manure to anyone in my area that wants it . . .

If anyone in my area (Swartz Creek/Flint MI) would like any horse manure (I have various stages - fresh to nearly finished) I am happy to share. I have lots, lol. Just bring buckets, bins, truck, etc. You will probably get quite a few LR's and cocoons with it, too.
