Vermicomposting, worm bin, composting with worms community and forums

I've been eating alot of mangoes during the past 60 days. They are in season here. I went to a mango festival and bought a ton load of them and couldn't eat them all. Since they are not citrus, I've been feeding them to my worm bins. Today while harvesting some worms out of my 10 gallon Rubbermaid I noticed a huge (I mean huge) ball of worms directly underneath the mango I put in yesterday. It leaves not doubt that my worms love mangoes. I guess they will have to wait until next season for more though, because I only buy local mangoes. They taste much better since they are harvested already ripe.

I buy mangos at Costco and my worms love the peels and the pits. I can look in my bin after putting in mango and the worms just gravitate to it. It is kind of fun to watch. They love melon too.

It's always cool to dig out an old mango pit and see worms inside them. They do take a long time to completely disappear...the only thing that takes longer in my bins are pistachio shells & avocado pits.

I wish my mango seeds would grow! You would think that with the heat and moisture they would thrive, at least before the worms and grubs get to them!
