Epic Worm Food Recipe for Vermicomposting
04:34

Are you baffled by what to feed worms to produce great compost? Most people new to worm composting are at a loss for what goes in there, other than the obvious vegetable scraps or melon peels.

Most red wigglers or European nightcrawlers will eat almost anything. The average worm will consume half its body weight in food per day. If you start with a pound of worms, they should eat a half-pound of food per day, and so on.

But like all compost, what you put into it will change what the finished compost’s quality is. So let’s go over a short list of what to feed worms to supercharge your worm poop and feed your plants!

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup alfalfa meal
  • 1/8 cup dried and powdered eggshells (microwave or bake these first to eliminate the risk of salmonella)
  • 1/8 cup azomite

Fish Fertilizer 101
06:47

The idea of fish fertilizer may sound strange. How can fish provide a food source for my plants?

But it shouldn’t come as any surprise that like all other natural products, fish can be a great fertilizer. Chock-full of vitamins, amino acids, proteins and more, fish fertilizers are organic. They offer other micronutrients which standard NPK fertilizers lack.

Yes, they can have a fishy smell to them, but once diluted, the smell fades quickly. And your plants will love them. You’ll grow to love them too!

Interested? Let’s dive into the wonderful world of fish fertilizers and supplements. We’ll discuss the benefits that these can provide to us. I’ve even got a great story from a pro who relates the story of his first experience making some! And even if you don’t want to make it, I can help you find places to buy it in the US and beyond.
