Crazy Q&A Podcast – Session #4

Howdy folks! I have yet another Crazy Q&A session for your listening enjoyment (lol)!

Those of you who’ve been listening to all of them will undoubtedly notice some overlap of topics. As I’ve said, I’m basically just sitting down and responding to questions one after the other – there is no sorting, grouping by topic etc.

I personally feel that revisiting these topics is never a bad thing since it can help to reinforce the concepts/approaches I discuss.

NOTE: I mention at the end of the podcast that I answered 10 questions. It was actually 9 – I just realized that I accidentally skipped over one! Whoops! (will definitely respond to it in the next session)

Topics Touched On
– Are crushed egg shells dangerous for worms?
– Keeping composting worms in the Florida heat
– Fruit flies – are they a real problem?
– Periodic cleaning out of a Worm Inn – is this needed?
– Possible to have too much pine straw and oak leaves as bedding?
– Rabbit cages over worm beds – do urine-rich zones of the bed need to be removed?
– Leachate dilution ratio
– Vermicomposting coffee grounds, beer mash and newsprint
– Ideal system for school classroom + use of rabbit droppings as worm food.

Hope you enjoy it!

    Hi Bentley, Just finished listening to all of your podcasts and now have a few ideas about dealing with my white wiggly things on top of my outdoor bin. My bin might be a bit too damp and maybe not aerated well enough. I have a lot of shredded paper from my home office and I think I will add some of that to the bin to help reduce moisture and aerate. Also I might be overfeeding. I don’t do anything with my kitchen scraps before adding to the bin, so it probably takes the worms longer than necessary to process it. I have heard that freezing the scraps helps to break them down, what do you think? I will keep listening. Thank you so much.
