I started this project in August last year on a very small scale to decide if I should buy or build a larger wormery. I reported in September that although the lobs were looking remarkably healthy, there had certainly not increased in number, in fact it looked like there were slightly fewer.
During the months since, I've kept a small amount of fresh veg peelings going in and ensured that the whole remained slightly damp. I came to check this morning and upon emptying the container I found.....................................NO WORMS!
What I have got is a quantity of nice-looking compost for the garden, not exactly what I had in mind. Has anyone else had experience of this phenomenon? Is it just lobs that don't seem to breed in these conditions because I know of others with dendros (or similar) having great success?
