How Much to Feed Worms? (Red Wigglers)
I currently have three worm bins filled with red wigglers.
I would like to soon be able to harvest three to four pounds of compost from the bins.
I feed my worms what I eat, mostly bananas, peppers, gumbo (okra), and celery trimmings. I dice everything up and feed them quite tiny to my red wigglers.
I would like to ask:
1) How many worms (red wigglers) should I have to be able to harvest three to four pounds of compost in normal, indoor conditions (e.g. not cold weather).
2) How much food should I feed, roughly, to the worms each week to be able to harvest three to four pounds of vermicompost?
Maybe a better way of asking this question is, considering the above stated food products, and imagining the worms are in one large bin, how many pounds of food (roughly, just an estimate) would be needed to be able to harvest 3 - 4 lbs of vermicompost. And how many worms should I have to accomplish this?
Please help. :o( Thanks GW'rs.
