Latest worm farm update

The worm farm is going strong for over 4 months now. It produces about 1.5 litres of worm juice per week. I’ve been putting this on my veggie garden and look forward to seeing some good results this year. My tomato plants are looking strong but probably still a month away from producing fruit. I’ve applied some worm juice to everything I’m growing – tomatoes, zucchini, cabbage, lettuce, broccoli, spinach, bok choy, silver beet, herbs, carrots, turnips, potatoes, pumpkins and even to new apple and citrus trees. I reckon it can’t hurt. Maybe next year it would be interesting to experiment by applying to some plants and not to others to see if it makes much difference.

The worm juice is collected in a one litre container placed under the drain home of the bath tub. Some worms do make their way out into the container (as noted by Rodney of justaddworms.com) but I just strain them out and throw them back into the worm farm. I then add the litre or so of worm juice to a watering can and dilute by filling up the rest of the can with water and put it on a part of the garden.
