Harvesting Alternatives

Seems people are really complaining about the hand sorting process which can take several long hours. One smart lady suggests adding a hardware screen over the finished vermicompost and adding new bedding material and food on top of that. The worms crawl through the hardware screencloth to get to the fresh food. If I don't want to get vermicompost instantly, then this would definately be the alternative for me.

Yet another idea would be to put everything in the bin on one half side, then put in piece of 1/4 hardware wire in the middle between the old stuff and fresh stuff. I've been reading that people like this one a lot and the remaining vermicompost has very few worms remaining in it after a time.

Still yet another idea is a hardware wire sifter! Easy enough to make.

Until next time....or the next great idea...

Thanks for the feedback! Most comments will be published right away except for you pathetic spammers who's messages will never see the light of day. If you are offended by having to fill one a "prove you are not a robot" form, my goodness...chill out! It takes two seconds to do and saves me a ton spam to have to filter through and it takes two seconds, MAX. If you are that easily offended, maybe you should simply not comment, and seek some counseling.
