New to raising EF's
I got 1/4 lb of EF's in May 2012. I now have over 4 lbs (Nov). I keep them in 12 rm totes 8x12x16 inches. I feed them chicken manure and shredded paper. I add some compost tea when they need water. I would like to get to the point where I get 50 lb of castings a day for my gardens and orchard. They are kept in an old wood drying kiln at a constant 75 F. Any suggestions or watch outs would be appreciated. I got about 50 lb of casings last time I harvested. Also, I built a trommel from a cheap concrete mixer, some sheet metal and some screen. The harvesting is done in minutes. Life is good but I am a little impatient waiting for the critters to reproduce.
