  •  Wormer here weighing in. Love my vermiculture, (0+ / 0-)

    but just wait until you make worm tea from the castings. Wow. Your vegies and garden will look like they are on steroids.  In addition, the worm tea protects against bugs.  I did manage to kill my whole herd of several thousand worms last year by feeding too much excess, rotting pineapple. Now I keep two bins going to prevent such a complete collapse.  Third bin starting soon.  I use 15 gallon rubbermaid bins and drill holes for ventilation.  The worms get all our kitchen scraps except meat, dairy, onion and citrus.  GardenWeb has a vermicomposting thread with very knowledgable posters.
    Happy composting.
