Last week I told you I put the food next to the ice cubes so the food would absorb the water, but it didn't really work so this week I sprinkled some of the Frabill food in and then squirted it with a spray bottle. That worked much better. I chose to feed my worms the Frabill worm food because I've had so much trouble with keeping my worms alive, I wanted a little more control with the food. I don't have to worry about anything rotting and now I don't have to worry about mold as much. The worms seem to prefer not having the food mixed with water before placing it in the bedding because this was the first time they ate all of the food and I didn't have to clean out molded food. I will stick with spraying the food with some water from now on.
A worm will eat around half it's body weight each day! The Frabill bedding has enough food in it to feed the worms for a few months since it is made of paper, but I still add some other food to make my bedding last longer. Food doesn't have to be added every day, but it is a good idea to add it the same time every week. Since Wormy Wednesday is on Wednesday, my worms get fed every Wednesday.
|The worms have been very camera shy. When I set this photo up, there were 3 worms.|
