Newbie w/ some ideas
First of all, thanks to all the posts that I have read over the last few days. It has been extremely educational (esp. Kelly and our alien sighting, worm bin exploding compatriot).
I am a newbie, with a bin about 3 weeks old. I have had some success, and have read quite a bit about different approaches. I have a multi-part question that has not been answered satisfactorily by searching other web sites, FAQS, and this site. To what extent is the use of office paper with either ink jet or laser toner safe to use with vermicompost that will eventually be used with foodstuffs? Second, what processed papers (ie, colored inks, shiny inks, colored paper, construction paper, or highly processed cardboard, for example, food boxes, beer containers, etc) are usuable for a garden with products intended for family consumption?
As a side bar, I am experimenting with the use of toilet paper and paper towel rolls inserted vertically into the vermicompost bin to improve aeration within the bin. If I see any interest in this, I will keep the board updated.
