I have a tray system (3 trays) and I just emptied the bottom-most one. There were almost no worms in it (but there are plenty in the next tray) and instead of the normal vermicompost, it's a gooey, slimy, marsh-like paste that smells quite bad (although not unbearably so). My best guess is that there was too much food, or too wet, or whatever, and the compost went anaerobic. My question is what to do with it? Can I dry it a bit and use it as a soil amendment, or do I have to aerate it and compost it further? I'm not worried about the smell, I'm just wondering if there's anything toxic to plants or soil critters in it.
