Because I had waited until I had 2 full trays there were no worms living in the lower tray at all. That made it really easy to harvest the castings. I plant to add most of them to my garden beds but I also like to use them for planting out seedlings.
|Lovely worm castings, you can see on the right that the castings were packed all the|
way to the base of the next tray. I dug out half a bucket full and they were packed so
tight you could hardly tell I had even taken any.
First of all I take a handful of worm castings and I flatten it out to be a flat disk and lie your seedling on top and wrap it with the castings disk.
Do you use worm castings? How do you use them?
