I mentioned my worm farm a while back, so thought I'd post a couple of pics. Its in an old bathtub, placed on a stand so there is room underneath for a bucket, and there is a slight slope for water to drain away into it.
The whole thing is well shaded, behind a slat fence on the east and under a locquat tree to the west, with a shed to the south protecting it from wind and full rain. I also have piece of shade cloth draped over it.
I put a mix of horse manure, clippings and leaves etc along with all the kitchen waste that doesn't go to the chooks...including citrus, coffee grinds, onion skins and oil! They handle it all, but come up asking for more when its manure on offer. They'll move into it within a day!
The compost is moved progressively towards the left, (drain end), and I seperate garden-ready castings over the drain by a row of bricks...always intended to make a wooden baffle, but this works ok.
I decant the "worm tea" that comes out the drain into plastic bottles and store in the shed, ready for fertilizing. Dilute it down, even 20-1, with water before applying to pot plants, citrus trees, vegies etc. I place handfuls of castings into every hole/furrow I dig for planting, and that includes vegie seeds, native seedlings etc. Its good stuff, and the worms get transplanted around our property.
Jeez I sound like Jackie French!
Change is inevitable, growth is optional.
