I checked on my WF-360 system today to see how things are coming along. It seems the worms have once again done well with the food materials I added last time. Given the (larger) quantity, I’m thinking the freezing definitely helped.
Still plenty of recognizable food materials in there, but I could easily get away with adding some more food if I wanted to. Me being me – I’ve decided to just let the worms continue munching away on what’s there.
Lots of worms hanging from the bottom of the second tray when I lifted it up, and lots more down in the first tray. If I do decide to harvest some vermicompost this month, I’m sure I’ll be needing to separate plenty of worms from it as well.
The material in the first tray is looking quite nice, though – so it probably won’t be long before I do harvest. Hopefully by holding off on feeding this week I’ll encourage the worms to work on some of that unprocessed bedding.
Still no worms down in the reservoir, so I’m happy about that!
IMPORTANT: Remember, today (Feb 14) is the deadline for submitting your entry for the February Worm Factory 360 contest – the draw will be tomorrow. As mentioned previously, this is actually the LAST chance (at least for now) to win one of these bins! All you have to do is fill out a short (Nature’s Footprint) survey on the Red Worm Composting contest page.
