What do you guys use for your worm beds, and how do you feel about rabbit droppings. I've heard they are great for worm beds.

Cindi!
If you use table scraps be sure and don't use any type of meat or cooking oil or greasy scraps.

I dont use rabbit droppings because I dont have rabbits, but I understand they are great for worm beds. I use 100% pure arabian horse manure from the finest arabian horses in the country! Of course this is mixed with shredded newspaper.I use a design of my own, for boxes (not really beds) with drain and air systems to collect the tea for the garden and keep the beds airated.

When it comes down to it, does horse manure really have a pedigree? Just curious, not having owned any horses other than a few belgians when I was a kid, I didn't know you could get 100% arabian manure???
Sorry, I just had to do that, don't hate me cause I'm stupid. LOL

Personally I use cotten sheets, and embroidered pillowcases on my worm beds.
Sorry I had to do that.

Don't know about worm beds, but rabbit droppings make excellent garden fertilizer. Good if you work it in well before planting - can be very strong!

You guys are nuts. Okay, sheets and pillowcases, got it. I was thinking of doing worms but they sound like a lot more maintenece than I have time for. Where do you get initial inventory?

I used shredded newspaper for my initial beds, and add kitchen waste as we get it. Just experimented with them last year and bought a bunch of old fishing worms that were on sale 'cuz they'd been in stock for so long...they did just fine, but you need a pretty fair amount to get started. Lots of places sell 'em mail order by the pound. They are not a lot of work...dump the food in every day or every couple of days, spritz some water when they begin to dry, maybe once a week for me.

Tom
