well worms did not seem happy. so my guess was PH.
so been shaking some lime into bin and spinning.
sent for some PH strips. got them yesterday. so i took
some distilled water and some compost and put in a bottle.
shook it well and let set overnight. checked today. is 7.5
will add some more lime till it get's to 7. then will add more
worms. they should be happy then.

stand by your worms!
the intolerance of the old order is emerging from the rosy mist in which it has hitherto been obscured.

worms still don't like it. i am guessing i added a few
handfuls of pellet N. it must be the high N salts.
was cleaning up dirt bag spot. noticed i had a bag
of composted chicken shit so added it to composter.
i am still spinning it and running auger thru it every night.
was thinking i need paper or hard wood dust in there to
suck up the N. was cleaning porch a bit last night. i came
across a bag of cat litter. well looked at it was pellets.
thought thats odd so read bag. 100% recycled paper then
baked. so is paper pellets perfect. added some to bin it
was a little wet anyway. today i got around to harvesting
castings from worm bins. got plenty, so added a 5 gal
bucket to composter. was also kind of wet so added more
paper pellets. will spin and auger a week or so. then will
toss a few worms in there. see if they live or not.
