MY worms are soooo freakin happy, i think.
they are lively, and slowly, but surly eating away at the food i smear out for them. i found these little black globbs all over the bottom part of the tub.
i'm pretty sure that's worm terds, castings .... poo ... compost if you will. it's very encouraging to see them poop alot after only 10 days. i give them mostly veggie scraps, leftover pulp from juicing, and when i blend something for them i throw some oats and a table spoon of coffee grounds in there for them. we drink so much coffee, that i would probably kill them if i put it all in there, so most of it goes to the compost. but i still think it's too much. this must be a sign that i need to build another compost pile :)
as you can see. their bedding is 90% shredded news paper. i chose this because i have a paper rout. and i'm trying to turn old news papers into black gold. so far they seem to be living in it happily. i do notice that it dries out quickly along the top and around the edges. i have been spritzing them 3 or 4 times a day. it's no hassle tho, they live in my bedroom, at the foot of my bed.
when i started them, i crushed boiled egg shells in the with newspaper and spread around a quart of soil from the outside. then i added aprox 100 worms. and now we wait .........
