Hello, I built your system a couple of weeks ago and it seems to be working fine. Thank you!!!
I have two questions - the worms are not eating all the scraps I make daily. Will they grow bigger and eat more eventually or do I need to have more than one?
Also I tried to get the buckets apart to move to the harvesting stage and they are stuck together. Normally I would pour in water or hit the buckets with a mallet but I don't want to do that with the worm family in there. Is there an easy way to get them separated?
Thanks a lot!
Can Black Soldier Flies get in thru a 1/8 inch drill hole??
Are worm castings worm skin or worm poo?
You would think for as much effort and forethought you put into your idea, you would have put something underneath to catch the castings so they arent flying everywhere. Hahaha A nice shallow square plastic bin would be perfect.
Have you thought of installing some sort of crank? I know isn’t a lot of force applied with this method, but I wonder if will make it easier for someone with limited motion. Good idea by the way.
Everything is dry... will it work when the dirt is wet? Worms like moisture.
It's not really much different from sieving the dirt from my compost bin.
What a great idea! Wish I was handy with a hammer! Thanks!
Cool idea but, wouldn't it be easier to just use the smaller screen to begin with? Why do you need to screen it twice?
Is this a good method to use with red wigglers?
I love that. It is so practice. The whole family can get involved.
Interesting and unique thanks for sharing.
Good job awesome idea will def. Have to try this
Would it not be easier for the 2nd sifting to put the castings IN the bucket and shake them out? Just a thought but great set up and thank you for the time it took to share this!
Good initiative, but i wonder about moisture. The example was made with dry material, but the composting (when it is with worms) in any point is wet and with kind bunches of wet soil...how do you handle this?
How do you recover the egg capsules after you have screened your bucket?
Thank you so much.
How is it so dry? Don't the worms need it moist?
maybe I'm stupid, but aren't worms in the ground already doing this? I'd be interested to know why so many organic gardeners are talking about having secondary worm production.
