Feeding the worms
- Collect food for worms
- Wash all vegetables! You can blend the food to make it easier for worms to eat.
- Give the food to the worms. Remember to put it at another spot everytime you feed them.
- It doesn’t matter how many times a week you feed your worms. As long as they have enough food. But not too much!
- Bury the food about 5 cm deep.
1 pound of worms = 1 pound of food waste.
This can rise depending on how the worms are doing.
