Thanks, I think he's quite lovely too! He's a Flemy, just a year old...he's got a little more growing to do... I have him and a Mini Rex, they both use the sawdust pellets in their litter boxes- I find it's the best for seperating droppings from urine-soaked bedding. The worms LOVE the droppings. I just use a kitty litter scoop to seperate the droppings, as the sawdust pellets break apart as soon as they have a little moisture in them.- so it sifts out nicely. If there are a few pellets mixed in with the droppings it doesn't seem to bug the worms either.
I've also seen some nice corner litter trays that have like a screen or something on top? So the urine goes thru (to the litter below- I'm guessing?) and the droppings stay on top and can be lifted out.
I think litter with urine in it would need some serious pre-composting to get rid of the smell etc... if it were to be added to the bin.
I know a few people who are using bunny poop, everyone seems to be having great results :)
I'm not sure how soon I will bei nteh columbus area but I will talk to my firend that lives there about getting together so I can visit with her and pick up some worms! Bunnies are so cute! Next year we will be starting a small farm here on our land... I'm prepping now for the raised garden and we're putting materials away fencing the yard for goats and chickens :D I lovel iving in the country!
Hey Amy, did you give the bunny poop a try yet?
I'm about to harvest my first bin that was solely for processing the buns... I'm just finding there's quite a bit of hair mixed in with it!
That was totally a surprise!
Hi Amy! I just joined vermicomposter.com. I really like your worm bag and will be making one for a nature center. I hope to make a new and more interactive worm composter for visiting kids and this one is perfect. I do have one question. Do you ever have to wash the bag? Is it necessary?
Hi Amy, I saw your digestive table and intraterrestial soundings on your site. I like your art. I'd like to say thanks again for sharing designs of worm bin bag, I've spent about 15 euros for materials.
As you've told me on instructables my worms are very big; unfortunately I bought them from a bait shop without being sure if they are EFs and paying much more than what you pay for vermicomposting worms. Obviously the bigger ones between all worms are chosen to attract fish, I hope that they attract each other, too, and will lay eggs soon.
I'd like to shift over to your bag system...currently using rubbermaid stacked bins, and separating the worms is a real pain. But when you open the bottom, it doesn't just all dump out? You have some control?
Amy,my truck will have a screen under the hood,that opens away from the front window.So you sit in the front seat and watch composting stuff from the seat.I have to find someone to make me a worm hood ornament to go with my theme.On the back,i'm also going to have a memorium to Mary Appelhof.And hopefully can give her book away somehow.I'll probably come up with more wild ideas, because it helps to keep me driven.
I just loved your table .My wife won't let me build one though. You have some fantastic ideas,Keep up the great artwork.I know you love what you do! Not every one can say that!Thanks!
The neat thing about this truck idea,is it can be changed to keep the idea fresh.Car show people may not get the picture.But i'll let you know.
Also i forgot.The totem pole idea with vc fed through the top,could be called "worms on the brain"Thanks again Amy!
Amy,how has it been going?Just thought i'd tell you.I entered my truck in a competition to have them complete your dream vehicle on national television.It would be some good exposure about recycling.I just told them about my health issues and goals for my truck.So i will just see what happens! Just think if they discussed this stuff on a "man's"car show! You could even design worm bins that look like tool boxes for them to put in thier man caves! :-)
Amy, i got a while before my themed truck will be done.Not sure what all kind of artwork inspires you? But let me know if you are ever interested in donating a small piece that could be used as my hood ornament.I prefer it to be made out of some sort of waste,that can be chromed.I may weld up and grind a worm shape out of stainless,that can be polished? But it has to be something that goes with my theme.I may even make a 3-d recycle emblem,and polish it!That would be cool! Anyhow,no pressure! I just know you have a creative mind.Heck,you can give me any idea! I am open for any thing outside of the norm! See ya!
Wow,that sounds awesome! I can always measure the two holes in my hood already.But i can make them in any pattern any way,so it screws through the bottom.You got plenty of time.I am still in a bit of a hole right now.But any idea you got is great.I will check and see what all is capable of being chromed.But they probably can do anything,since some will probably do like bronzing baby shoes.But real castings idea sounds really cool! I knew you would have some awesome ideas! Just get with me whenever you want! I'm still thinking of wicked ideas.I am probably going to donate my truck to a museum when i die! They will not ever be able to change the design if they accept it.But they may not want it! HE HE!!
But it does not have to be chromed as long as it can be ridgid enough to handle being handled! A truck hood ornament is an object people check out and touch all the time!
My hood will tilt opposite of the way the blue ones hood does.And will have the screen playing under the hood.So imagine sitting in the seat,with videos playing.With sound through the stereo.Hopefully Mary Apelhof gets it! I still have to design a memorium for the tailgate.It will be smooth,like the yellow truck!
