Questions on storing my castings/vermicompost
I have stackable worm trays. The bottom tray is a sump tray that is supposed to capture the fluids from my bin, but I often find actual compost/castings and worms mixed in with those fluids. I just emptied that sump tray and removed as many worms as I could see.
I would now like to store the compost/castings that I just harvested. I thought I could store them in a bag for up to a year (I read this somewhere, not sure if it's even true), but the mound of castings/compost is quite damp.
Will that prevent me from being able to store the worm castings/compost in a bag? What is the best way to store them anyway, without needing a pump or something?
The castings/compost have no smell. Smells like earth. Not sure if that's helpful or not. Please help. I'm not sure of how to even store them or how long I can store them.
For what it's worth, I have an airtight sealer that I planned to use to store the soil. Is that advisable?
And do I have to squeeze it out before bagging it, since it's so damp?
