Winter is the time of year when many raising red worms will find it difficult. They find their worms are dying off. This can easily be avoided if you take precautions when raising your red worms. Seasonal changes affect the way one raises their red worms. When winter arrives we concentrate on keeping our red worms warm. It is much easier when raising red worms to keep a worm bin warm than trying to keep it cool enough during the warmer months. Raising red worms and transitioning from winter to spring can be relatively simple if you approach...

One of my most favoritest sites, Earth911, had a post titled Charlotte Airport to Start Worm Composting. They post said: The airport plans to open a new $1.1 million recycling center in February with a worm-based composting system that can handle up to two tons of waste per day, the Charlotte Observer reported. This is such a dope idea. The airport will be using...

Since I’ve shown you what it’s like feeding my worms, they have gone a mating spree. They have been reproducing like crazy. I assume that this means that they are really comfortable with their environment. Not sure that my words could do much justice for how many there are, so hopefully this video can: ...

Wanted to give a glimpse into what it’s like feeding my worms. Since I’m using a Worm Factory 360, I needed to start a new tray. Here’s what I did: Added some blended food scraps to the bottom. Covered them with some browned fallen leaves. Topped that with shredded newspaper that I sprayed down with a water bottle. Covered everything with a sheet of newspaper that I sprayed down as well. It’s quick and easy. Here’s a video to see what it’s like. ...

I’m using the worm leachate that was produced by the Worm Factory 360 in my garden. The leachate was mixed up with 3 parts water and put into a spray bottle and the plants were sprayed down. Since my kale leaves are yellowing, aphids have infested my purple kale and cabbage worms wiped out the oak greens, I’m hoping that this will help to help both fertilize the plants and to keep the the insects away. The leachate is produced by all of the excess moisture that the worm bin has been drained out of the worm bin. This is different...

Now that I’ve arrived in Los Angeles, along with my worms, I’m starting to get the hand of this worm composting thing. The Worm Factory 360 is definitely performing much better than the bins that I had built and killed all my worms with. Though in checking in on them, I’ve noticed that there are little white dots on the food scraps. There seems to be insects, but could possibly be mold as well. I tried to take a decent pic of it above and capture it on video, but they are mad small and hard to get into focus. I assume...
