Re: Peg's garden - vermiculture (long)

Daryl, I'm not Peg, but I dont' think it was the coffee grounds.  My red 
worms did this when they had too much moisture.  A drain pan helps with this, 
although not always.
In our extensive testing (MG) we found that the best type of device for 
vermiculture was the "Can of worms" sold in garden catalogues and vermic. 
sites.  It is pricey...thus the reason I dont' have one....but it was the 
easiest to use, least problems, has a spigot on the bottom to drain the 
liquids for use as compost tea, easiest to separate compost from new 
material, etc.  
NO, I don't work for them, just relaying our test results.

P>S> pardon the cross post (is that what it's called?) but this having three 
lists is so confusing.
