My latest “Worm Brief” (at time of writing) was inspired by this video that RWC worm-friend, Damon, recently shared with me.
I myself have toyed with the idea of growing vetch as an N-rich material for my worm beds (and composting systems in general), but have always worried about it getting out of control. I think Damon’s approach is a great way to keep the vetch in check, while also providing the worms with a good habitat.
I’m definitely going to be trying something similar this year – perhaps with some sort of “worm tower” placed in the middle of the bed so I can easily add waste materials as well.
Thanks again to Damon for sharing! Please give him a “Thumbs Up” if you are a YouTube user, and be sure to check out his cool site, Greenhorn Gardening!
