hi homers.. great idea.. you should check out vermiculture board here too.. great people there..
all are very helpful..
thing with 5 gal buckets..your worms will compost that volume pretty fast..
i would recommend cutting holes on sides..even bottom (remember to have a liquid catch under the bucket)
this will aid in good circulation in the bucket.. and make your worms happy campers..
but if you have alot of buckets..why not...
i buy big 37 gal rubbermaid tubs when they are on sale at home depot.. i cut holes all over the
tub..use the lid as a liquid catch.. and cover the tub with cardboard...
my worms are very happy campers..
whats the saying.. necessity is the mother of invention..
great idea homers!!!!
you should go for it ...
good luck to ya..
Thanks for responding tropicalnut! I appreciate all your comments. I will have to make the 5gal buckets work because it's for my Master Gardener group-and of course-funds are always running short and one member has a bunch of them!
very cool homers.. you will find tons of ways of using the castings..i sure do..
i have 5 37 gal tubs..i know i could use more castings.. but i tend to go to far
with things..LOL so.. the 5 tubs is plenty... :)
best of luck to ya !!!!
