How to harvest worm castings
I just transferred all my worms out of a tray that was about 10 cm deep into a 3 layer set up with the working area 40-50 cm deep and I wound up with all three layers pretty much full.
My objective of course is to remove the vermicast that I have let accumulate in there for probably too long.
I notice in your pictures the vermicast looks quite light. What I transferred was heavy and kinda of thick.
Do you suggest that I try to sort and separate the worms from the vermicast by hand - and try to get to one working tray? Or will the worms move up to the top tray by themselves so that I can remove the bottom tray with vermicast?
Should I try pouring water through the whole assembly or try aerating??
Thanks for your help
