vermicomposting pet waste
I have two dogs, and I was wondering how large a container and how many worms I would need to vermicompost about a quart of waste a day. This would be a bottomless container as described in another post: http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/verm/msg041454006234.html?5
My soil is hard to dig deep, and I was really wondering if I could get away with something about 2' deep.
Should I use regular earth worms, or red wrigglers?
Will keeping the lid on and covering each new addition with something like shredded newspaper keep the odors from being a problem? I would like to put the system at the back of my yard, which, unfortunately, is close to the neighbors' house.
Thanks for any input.
