Yeah you can top dress it but mix it into your initial soil mix. Don't over complicate shit... and don't worry about the npk....
Should be no problem. I make my own peat based bedding and it includes perlite. Mainly, it's the beginnings of a soil mix and everything is what would be going into the mix anyway. Old soil should work just as well if not better.Thanks wetdog I will order some. Just dethawed and chopped up a bunch of cauliflower, green beans and lettuce for my two bins. For bedding I this time I used a bunch of old soil (with perlite). Wondering how it will be when I sift my VC with the perlite in there?

But the perlite has never been an issue when harvesting. My screen is 1/4", but I use it less and less, mainly just baiting as many as I can with melon rinds and using the VC "as is", worms and all.
Free and local resources vary greatly. So do gardeners' space and conditions. Some feel using coco takes a load off Spagnum Peat Moss. But I am not a purist nor a Puritan.Why are you using coco as a bedding? To me organic gardening should be based around free and local resources as much as possible. My worm bins in Thailand are coco bedding but that's a free and local resource.

Check out pellets or crumbles for layer hens, has 3 times the calcium. Worms dig it![/QUOTE]Can anyone add their thoughts about the following? It's a local store with check starter mash. I've heard starter mash is a good option for worm feed. Thoughts?

Prior to yesterday, I didn't know I was allowed to raise chickens. I'm still not sure. But it looks like my neighbor has a coop in their postage-stamp sized yard. I am not opposed to getting worm food this way; of course, that means buying the stuff for a coop.There is no way I’d spend extra money on worm feed. There are virtually limitless FREE ways to give worms all the organic material they need.
Feed your chickens the crumbles and give the worms the chicken shit
You're a beast!Hey guys.
The plot next to me is vacant and was getting overgrown. Snakes, bugs and other wild tropical animals were living all up in it and coming into my yard and fucking my life up.
So I’ve started clearing it with my push mower and machete. My wife thinks I’m crazy and I don’t argue. Nevertheless, I’ve got like 80% of it done.
There’s palm trees over there but the bottom of the trunks are rotting? I noticed how easily the trunk just falls and peels away from the tree like rotted wood.
I’m new to the tropics and idk shit about palm trees, but the material that makes up this tree trunk seems really fibrous and strong.
I’m about to knock this bitch over.
Is the trunk of one of those notched-style palm trees beneficial for soil in any way?.... I’m thinking about busting up the trunk and giving it all to my worms.... View attachment 4182814
