Overwhelm your Food Scraps with Browns
"Overwhelm your Greens with Browns" This concept is the key to vermicompost bin balance. An unbalanced bin is an unhappy bin. We do not want unhappy worms.
"The name of the game is just to really overwhelm your foodscraps with your browns and you will see that you get much better compost. It's not going to smell and it's going to break down quicker" Credit to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pwu21uR1oBQ
The micro tumbler looks like it might mix together my juicing scraps with browns and let them all get nice and juicy together before adding to the bin. But DIY I will just probably put them in a 5 gallon bucket and give it to the kids to kick it between two goals in the yard. Because I'm not going to spend a lot of money on a vermicompost pre-tumbler.
