Worm Beds and Harvesting Worm Castings
In this post you will see some of my worm beds, and how I harvest my worm castings.
Here is one of my Worm Beds. It is 8′ long 3′ wide, This bed is used for Worm Castings production for the most part. These beds are harvested and rebedded on a monthly bases. The bedding is pre-composted, These beds are housed with Red Wigglers and European Nightcrawlers.
I take the used up Vermicompost and screen it through a 1/4″ screen, which seperates all the larger worms from the small worms and worm cocoons(worm eggs)and the worm castings.At this point the larger worms go back into this same bed to produce Worm Castings and alot of egg cocoons to be harvested again in another month.
In this pic you can see the Vermicompost on the floor after being screened through the 1/4″ screen.
The pile on the floor, as I said before is all the little worms, egg cocoons, and the Worm Castings that were in the 18 cubic ft worm bed.
At this point this pile of vermicompost is left to sit for a week or two before it is moved out to the Old Fanning Mill, to produce the final product (Worm Castings)
