    Hi people, my friend got me to build a worm farm in a bath a year ago. We put in all our kitchen waste that the chooks don't want plus grass cuttings =

    citrus, meat scraps, onion, garlic, coffee, tea bags etc.

    It's finally worked and the contents look like soil. The question is can i dig it into my yard and thats it?

    The soil here is very sandy so I thought I'd try and uproot the barbed wire style grass and mix the very rich compost into it and hopefully it will be good for growing stuff.

    Any advice? thanks

    G'day morktron :)

    Welcome to the PRI Forum.

    Congratulations on the worm farm! It sounds (reads) like you now have some very rich and lovely vermicast to dispense around your site. Yes, you could just mix it with the soil currently on your site in order to start "growing stuff". However there are a few other options (depending upon your location and other vernaculars) for getting all those wonderful nutrients, biota and embryonic worms into your growing medium that you may first wish to explore. Here's a couple, just to get you started:

    No-dig gardening

    Compost/vermicast tea

    Worms truly are fantastic beings - I love them. Good luck with your future endeavors, and don't forget to come back and tell us how you get on.

    Cheerio, Mark :eek:
