Well, it’s been two weeks since we started the experiment with Red Wigglers and European Nightcrawlers. Since we started with juvenile worms we were not really expecting much change this soon. And, with only 10 worms in each small bin, they had not consumed much of their food or bedding yet. No Cocoons were found, but a few of the worms had developed a clitellum.
We did add a big hole in the center of the lid to increase air flow. As a result, it did seem like the bedding was a little bit dryer than we want so some water was added to each. The worms all found near the food source in each of the six small containers. Both, the Red Wigglers and European Nightcrawlers were looking good.
Please let us know if you have any questions or comments about the experiment. We would love to hear from you. All who are following, please leave us a comment, even if it is a brief one just to let us know you are following along.
...regular soil worms are NOT well suited for worm composting, and cannot be raised very easily in captivity?
Similarly, composting worms should NOT be released in your garden or on your lawn! Any supplier that tells you otherwise is simply trying to separate you from your hard-earned money.
If you want to learn more about how you CAN using composting worms in the garden - or about anything else relating to worm composting, please drop us a line anytime!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi, Kyle and Jen here. We have started up a small worm farming business, and we're really excited to start helping others get into raising worms (for fishing, worm composting, or even for profit). Thanks for stopping by!
