RWC reader, Brad Irish, recently sent me a photo (and brief description) of the set of “tools” he uses to prepare materials for his Worm Inn. I knew this was something that other “Worm Heads” would appreciate so I asked if I could share it here.
This is what he had to say:
Attached you will find a photo of the tools I use to prepare my
Worm Inn food for my worms by chopping it up using an
ice scraper and a dedicated immersion blender if I want
to puree the mixture. It seems to be working very well in
that my Worm Inn is doing well having started it in the
middle of July with 1 lbs. of worms.
And here is the pic:
Ice scraper and dedicated immersion blender…gotta LOVE it!!!
By the way – if you are wondering why there is so much liquid in the bucket below Brad’s Worm Inn, it’s because the system has been sitting outside during some heavy rain showers. Brad tells me he’s been adding molasses and aerating the leachate before adding to his tomato plants.
Thanks again for sharing, Brad!
