Growing local

One of the benefits of being on Twitter ;-) ... just reading about making what they call a Worm Tower. Some time ago I posted a question about In-Garden Wormeries ... they are the same structures, different names. For anyone interested ...

I love my worms. Flies and all. ;)

I'm an EX worm-wrangler. Very heavy things, those big round trays to heft about and pick the worms out of their crap. Then feeding them - I never did get it right and although there is no smell (what are your folks doing?) the compost flies find the wormeries with vege scraps and lay hundreds of eggs and the !@#$ larvae make the worm bed sloppy. It's supposed to be that acid conditions attract the compost flies but I added lime, lime, lime. In short I struggled with them for several years and gave up in frustration.

You will still have to feed them in their garden home though. With chooks, there wouldn't be a lot over to feed the worms on, perhaps? Bob reckons that feeding manures especially aged cow and horse won't attract the compost flies.

It's all too much - I'm simplifying everything and that includes buying worm crap from Bob at Landsborough Worms. Great stuff though, the best really :-)
