What a job!  I finished my second ever harvesting of vermicompost. Did two sessions of the migration method (over a period of 2 weeks), then did 2 sessions of cone-shaped piles in sunlight.  I was so amazed when I came across cocoons as well as very tiny baby worms.  It was quite difficult spotting cocoons in the black compost.  Glad I have an unfinished basement in which store the worms and then do this harvesting.  I could not imagine doing this task in an apt.or home without a…
