I just harvested the organic vermicompost from my worm bin after leaving it for about eight weeks.
There’s a lot I have still to learn, but I’m not displeased with my first harvest – perhaps a kilo of vermicompost. It’s not all dry and in little pellets as it would be if you bought it (e.g. Worm Castings - 30lb), but that’s because they usually sieve it, and so on. I will spread it under my jasmine bush, the Rangoon creeper and use some to mix into the soil for some new plants.
Here’s a short film (three minutes) showing the process of removing the compost and restarting the worm bin.
There’s lots of information by more knowledgeable people out there of course. Virginia Cooperative Extension has a useful short guide here; and a PowerPoint here.
You can also locate vermicomposters near you at vermicomposters.com.
