I am a newbie to vermicomposting. In September 2011 I started with worm factory 360 and quickly found that our family of 4 were producing more than the WF was going to handle so I built a 2'X2'X2' flow through bin with 5 lbs of red wigglers. At this time the bin is a little under 1/2 full and has been in operation since October 2011.
We feed the bin once per week with a large freezer bag full of fruit and veggy waste. The worms seem to be healthy enough and react quickly when a light is shone in the bin. When I have attempted to harvest the casting from the bottom of the bin what I get is a little soggy and clumps together like clay.
Should I be concerned or should I just leave it alone and hope it will dry out? I have considered digging it out and put it back on top to be reprocessed.
