worm beds

greenspun.com : LUSENET : A Country Singletree : One Thread

I finally got DH to frame in underneath my rabbit cages so I can start growing worms and have finished worm castings. The rabbit business is going well so now the next step is to utilize the droppings for 2 more possible income sources, worms and compost. The beds are 3 ftx10ftx12 inches. I have rabbit droppings, hay, and whatever feed was scattered on to the ground. I also thew in a few pitchforks of composted horse manure. I have plenty of worms[red wigglers?] living in my garden area that has aged horse manure in it. I believe these worms will work for the beds. My question is how many worms for each bed? Most sell by the lb but I dont want to buy them if I dont have to. I want to have enogh worms in each bed for maximum production. Any one done this? I was told to post this here for Jay. Any info is appreciated.

You don't need to waste money buying worm stock. With the right environment, you will have plenty of stock in just a few months. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
