Hello Daylily Friends,
The next step is to add "Cream of Wheat." The mixture for the worms requires kitchen scraps and fiber. The coffee grounds are the kitchen scraps, and the cream of wheat provides the fiber. The worms will eat these things, and this will keep them healthy and productive. At different times Diana also adds (1) crushed egg shells, (2) old cerials, (3) old fruit, and (4) vegetables that are past their prime. Diana never puts meat or dairy products into her trays because these would be "bad" for the worms.
e just uses her hands and fingers. It looks like nasty work to me, but Diana conducts the operation as you might imagine a surgeon would conduct surgery. I might also add that Diana's worms are "Red Wigglers." That is, they work together as a group. Other types of worms work "independently" and can't do the work that is done by the Red Wigglers.
