It's easy to tell if you overfeed with the stinky bin, etc. but how do I know if I'm feeding enough??
If you always have some rotting food in the bin, you are not underfeeding.
I batch feed -- when the old batch is almost gone, in goes the new batch of food and bedding.
What I have read so far, worms will re-process their poop. Don't worry too much about under-feeding.
I am actually concerned about underfeeding because my family of 8 makes alot more waste than I can handle with the worms right now and so I am trying to make sure that I am feeding them as much as I can without the stinky bin syndrome! Someday, I will have a second bin, I hope, but my husband isn't too enamored with the first one and so I'm trying to take it slow and let him see how useful it is. I don't need the castings/fertilizer much right now as much as I just am trying to cut down on landfill.
Turn the dial all the way up to stinky and then back off one notch.
Hah, yes turn the dial up to 11!
