Wanna see my worms?!

I'm 54 but feel like a kid when I get to "play" with my worms!
So I have finally worked my way up to bin 3 vertically and think that it is time to 'harvest' the dirt from bin 1. I don't want to harm the earth worms or take any out of the system. So how exactly are you supposed to 'harvest the dirt and...do you take this special dirt and mix it with a baf of topsoil/planting dirt, or do you use it straight up?
I hope to plant my first vegetable garden in my backyard this spring and want to take advantage of all the hard work my worms have been doing. There is no where near enough dirt in bin 1 for a whole vegetable garden. Or do I harvest bin 1 and move bin 2 down and hope for enough dirt by spring from 1 and 2 to plant a small garden? email@example.com
