Glad your worms are doing OK, I always put a newspaper on top of the kitchen waste to keep it moist and they seem to like that.

Hi,

I've just been listening to the bbc coverage of the world record breaking 'Dave the worm' this morning - 40cm! Robo - not sure you would fit too many of those in your wormery, but I reckon some worms that size would make some great compost very quickly! I'll be keeping my eye peeled when digging to see if I can find any which could enter the record books.

I took a few months before I got some juice out of mine. I've have about 5 litres since about June. You might want to wrap it up if you've got it outside. I've put mine in the garage for winter.
