Warning: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME
What do you get when you mix a guy with too many worms, too much lettuce, a bad camera, and too much free time?
Worm Salad – Blue Cheese or Ranch?
Actually, you get some interesting worm experiments!
First off, anyone that knows me realizes that I’m a BIG advocate of controlling the amount of produce scraps that you feed your worms at any one time. I’ve helped too many people trying to bounce back from overfeeding their worms, and dealing with the problems associated with overfeeding. Not fun.
I feed my worms lettuce quite often. Many times, before the lettuce even breaks down the worms are already swarming it. So, I thought to myself…….
Lettuce has some qualities that most produce does not, specifically:
It does not contain sugars that attract fruit flies.
It does not break down into a vinegary mess.
It contains and holds water pretty well.
But, could it be used as a bedding by itself?
So….1 pound of worms later, let’s see how the worms do on a straight diet of lettuce, no bedding.
I’ll keep you posted.
