Food to vermicompost proportion
I know this really depends on what you are actually feeding the worms, but does anyone have an estimate of how many pounds of food scraps that it takes to produce a pound of vermicompost?
Or for example how many pounds of food does it take to make a, say, 5-gallon bucket of castings?
For example, does anyone keep track of how much food they actually put into their basket? Something like - start out with 1lb of worms, feed them a total of 150 pounds of food for 9 months and that produces 3lb of worms + a full 5-gallon bucket of castings??
