...is another name for feeding and harvesting the by-product of worms
...which is another way of saying harvesting worm poop to use as fertilizer in your garden.
I still do that. I save my kitchen veggie scraps and feed my worms which I keep in a large plastic storage bin on the patio. From time to time, like today, I don rubber gloves and stir up the mess to see how the worms are doing. Then I take a shower and wash my hair to try to get rid of the wormy compost smell. It's stinky.
Here's what I've learned after three years of farming worms:
1. Red worms work just fine, seem to "process" fruit and veggie debris faster than earthworms, and survive against all odds, including being left out in the cold all winter.
2. Red worms do not seem to like or are unable to penetrate the skins of whole cranberries. They also have trouble with sweet corn husks.
3. It's gross.
