OMG this smells so good! it looks and smells and feels like rich black soil! These are castings from the vermi-compost bin. I harvested some of the compost/castings from the worm bin. It’s a tedious process, but intriguing to see what is left after the worms get done with all the edible stuff. I found a metal staple from a tea bag (the bag and string and paper tag completely gone), a plastic label off of a banana and the plastic lining from a Starbucks cup (my experiment- it said it was compostable, I wanted to see if it really was). I start with scooping out the oldest section of the bin and dump it on several layers of newspaper. The worms don’t like light so they go into the pile. I just scrape off the outerlayer a little at a time sending the worms deeper to the center of the pile. I use the castings to topdress my bucket gardens, houseplants and other container gardens.
