    [–] I attempted [homemade] tortellini ypriscilla 1 points ago in food

    Nice! I got a ravioli maker for Christmas and they taste great even if they don’t always look great.

    [–] Can I give them veggies cooked in oil? ypriscilla 1 points ago in Vermiculture

    I put the rinds and pits in but later usually end up throwing them out. They don’t always break down. You can step on the pit and crush it and put it in, they can add “ruffage” like bark so they don’t hurt.

    It looks great! How did it taste?

    But you can generally fold in the small part on the bottom of the toilet plunger and use it as a sink plunger.

    [–] Can I give them veggies cooked in oil? ypriscilla 3 points ago in Vermiculture

    I’ve always read that you cannot give them oil. I messaged unclejimswormfarm.com last year to ask about peanut butter and they said no. I know that’s different but they related it to the oil.
    I keep the citrus, onions, dairy and meat out of my bin.

    I do freeze stuff in the summer and add it frozen sometimes on hot days. I read that it helps cool them down and add moisture.

    [–] Do I need to keep my worms above freezing? How? ypriscilla 1 points ago in Vermiculture

    You can wrap the bin with an old blanket or sleeping bag. Usually in the winter you do have a lot of slow down in their consumption. You can keep the extra scraps in the garage.

    Keep going! Reading is so important! Keep helping him advance by continually reading to him! The real success is when he fights you for the next book cause he can read it by himself and faster than you! Haha

    [–] My worms' favorite food ypriscilla 1 points ago in Vermiculture

    I don’t remember where I read this and I try to use the discard but I figure it is a treat for them so it’s kind of fun. Haha

    It is a really beautiful set up. Thank you for the information.

    [–] My worms' favorite food ypriscilla 4 points ago in Vermiculture

    I have sourdough starter and sometimes when I can’t use the discard I put it in the worm bin and they absolutely love it! It creates a feeding frenzy like nothing else I’ve seen.

    [–] Did I screw up my worm bin by hot compost? ypriscilla 2 points ago in Vermiculture

    Like the poster above, I use coco coir (which is very inexpensive at my local hardware warehouse) and paper which includes newsprint, cardboard, egg cartons, etc. It sounds like you need to “dry out” the bin. There should an unpleasant smell. Every time you add green waste you need to add brown. This could even include soil or sawdust. It will all benefit your end result.

    [–] There is no better feeling than growing your own. ypriscilla 1 points ago in gardening

    No better tasting either! I love home grown tomatoes! I just keep eating them, while I’m picking them, while I’m washing them, while I’m slicing them, it’s amazing there are any left for anyone else! Hahaha

    [–] Plants and a pup. Game on. ypriscilla 3 points ago in gardening

    All very great looking. Those wood planters are amazing. Like the comment above ^ I would love to know where you got them..

    [–] What next? ypriscilla 1 points ago in Vermiculture

    You can add cooked food as long as it is not salted and not meat or dairy. I don’t add salt to any veggies anymore just in case I add some to the bin. I keep my food waste in a flour or sugar bag with the coffee filters, teabags (no strings, staples or tags) and add strips of paper and use the bag for a cover on top of the brown and green waste in the bin.

    The compost should not be too wet or the worms can drown. It will smell bad and be muddy if it’s too wet. Go to UncleJimswormfarm.com to read more about temperature and consistency of your compost.
