Do worms need a balanced Diet?
I'm new to vermicomposting and appreciate advice from those who have 'been there, done that'. My question is concerning a 'balanced diet' for my worms. Maybe, I'm over thinking this as I am prone to do, but I would rather be safe than sorry.
I understand the carbon (brown)to green material ratio that we should strive for in yard waste composting but does that apply to vermicomposting? What about a balance of sugars, starches, proteins, fiber etc.? My wife and I eat a lot of fruit (sugars) and vegetables (fiber). I also have a coffee filter and grounds to dispose of everyday. Should I be concerned about excess sugar? Should I attempt to put together a balanced diet of brown and green for my worms and throw any left over material in my yard compost bin?
Thank you for your insight and response.
