Nice worm bin composting setup

This is cool:



I'm keeping my worms in an old dishwasher right now. It's lying on its back and what was the front door is now the lid. My friend Jeff came over the other day and we drilled a few holes in the bottom, raised it up on bricks and put an old bin underneath to catch the "worm tea." (I'd been meaning to do that for months... I've had worms in that thing forever and kept forgetting to add drainage.)

The fellow in the video claims worm tea made his garden grow like mad.  My guess is that the beneficial bacteria it provides are probably just as important as its nutrient content. Just a hunch. Vermicomposting isn't the simplest way to get compost, but it's bascially impossible to beat the quality of the final result.

I like gardening, and grow the vegetables in an organic manner, and it is always a pleasure for to get the best yield as compared to my friends, as I use the worm casts for enriching the soil, and remain unaffected by the harmful chemicals that are used in the synthetic fertilizers.
