How many worms?
Hello everyone. I've been looking into worm composting lately and I have a few questions I would like to ask.
-How many worms does one need to optimum results with a 4 square foot (2x2 ft) worm box?
-Can I use any kind of worms? Night crawlers are abundant around my apartment. I'm located in upstate NY.
-If all goes well, how much compost can I expect from this setup and how long will it take?
-How rich in nutrients would the final product be, compared to yard waste compost?
-In stead of using newspaper as bedding, would a few inches of already composted material (taken from a completely decomposed batch of yard waste compost) work? The idea here is enriching some of my yard waste compost with worm castings for making a super rich compost tea.
