  2. @Pgm98387 I’m growing in containers indoors and have home made worm
    castings but I’m looking for other FREE ways to make top soil from a bag
    better. any suggestions?

  3. I’ve been putting organic oranges only, 3-4 oranges peels per week in
    there, no problem yet, all worms seem healthy. Usually cardboard or brown
    paper bags in there, I’ll take the colored paper out of there. Oddly the
    smell was like sweet soil. Any seeds that were in the bins sprout like
    crazy. Can hardly wait to see seeds get going in trays.

  4. I’m still learning about the worms what they like, temperature, moisture,
    how they respond to different materials. Not adding too much of one thing
    or too little of another, clean paper cardboard (no weird inks) Letting the
    paper, cardboard age outside in the rain. Adding cut grass telephone books
    (shredded than aged) What I’ve been amazed by is they EAT everything that
    gets put in the bin so far. Excluding avacado seeds pistachio shells.

  5. @Pgm98387 I’m currently working with a worm bin for castings but was
    wondering how else to amend the soil for free?

  7. The can of drainage is poured back into the pile sometimes. Spring & summer
    I’ll pour it into a capped bottle mix it with rain water and pour it on the
    berry plants.

  9. It depends on your location. Sandy? clay? mucky? what grows easy around
    where you live? Get a ph tester kit to determine acidity.

  10. hey pgm are you having any issue with adding orange rinds and glossy paper
    to your bins? I’ve read that both those are not good for worms. besides
    that it seems like a really great set up.
