Worm Castings

We harvested our first batch of worm castings since we got our worms last summer. I would say it amounted to about a gallon of the stuff. A few weeks ago, Tristan moved the worms' bedding and food to one side of the bin and left the casting on the other half. After several weeks, almost all of the worms had moved away from the castings and we were able to simply scoop them out. I applied it around the base of our seedlings in an attempt to give them an urgently needed nitrogen boost.

A good source of nitrogen is pee! That's something you could look in to. I think you need to dilute it with water (1:10 or so), then water the ground around your plants with it. good luck!
