Aging/Curing Harvested Vermicompost
I have a nagging feeling there is something advantageous to curing harvested vermicompost we have not posted about yet. This would be in addition to being able to capture for reuse any worms that have hatched from the aged vermicompost. In the spring I find myself using chunkier, raw, freshly harvested vermicompost once I have used up the finer quality stuff harvested in the winter and aged a bit like wine. It is almost like there is still some bedding that could do with the addition of a tiny bit of easy nitrogen such as pumpkin or urine, or banana skins. Something nitrogen that would breakdown with no residual parts while bringing the original bedding or corn cobs, cardboard, pine cones, etc in to tinier pieces than the first vermicomposting go around.
