Cleaned out the worm farm

 Cleaned out the worm farm

I cleaned out the worm farm last night. I had left it a little longer than usual and come to find that it was easier to clean this way. There were almost no tiny worms to worry about, 99.9% of them came out in one step simply using a plastic mesh strainer. So perhaps I have learned that it is acceptable to allow the larger worms to forage for beetle eggs for a time to allow the worm container to grow large so that they are all easy to migrate out of the frass. The worms climb up and eat eggs as well as the egg laying substrate which is empty egg cartons for me. Guess they like paper.

I have begun tossing all sorts of food items into my worm farm. Looking in there now I have flour tortilla, corn tortilla, corn cob, lettuce, shaved potato skin, apple skin.
