I have access to horse manure. I'll maybe try some on the new bin, along with hoof clippings.

I already use hoof meal in my coco mix, it's 13% N exclusively N-P-K-wise.

Today I took about 20 L of compost from a compost heap home.

A closer look:

Covering and moistening again...

Now I'll just wait a few days, up to two weeks untill I start the feeding regime. The container stands in the cool restroom on a mat on the cool tiles, untill Donna decides otherwise

I'm thinking that I'll have only 1/10 of the amount of worms necessary for that bin. The container can hold 4000 - 6000 of them. So patience, untill the population builds up. I've fed a small bag of coffee grinds today, to attract them over the next couple of days and to judge the population.

I cheated a bit and added 1 kg of bought red wrigglers (=~ 800) - almost two months ago. That seems to speed up things a bit, still a waiting game. Maybe I'll add another kg, maybe, but the population should build itself up by now.

For all of you that are interested, I'm currently already harvesting the runoff from that talller bin. Worms are doing great and they have munched away quite some bits already. I simply freeze a collection of fresh kitchen scraps as a standby fodder. Frozen scraps are faster munched away, since freezing breaks the cell walls.
