Vermicompost in apartment questions 5 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 0  
Hi, my name is Melissa, just joined. I've been thinking of doing a small, under the sink, worm bucket. I've never done one before. I am a vegetarian and most of my food is fresh fruits and veggies and the amount that gets thrown out (skins, tops etc.) could just be put to better use than filling up a land fill. From my understanding red wigglers are the best to use? For the bucket, there are several premade ones for sale around the internet. Are those worth purchasing or am I just as well off drilling some holes in a bucket myself? The one I was looking at is "the wacky worm bin" just because it looked easier to separate the worms from the compost. Any input? Its just me in the house, if I do make my own would a 5 gallon bucket be big enough, or do I need to go with a bigger container? Does height vs. more floor space make any difference to the worms? (ie: a bucket vs. a Rubbermaid tub that has more floor space). Do the worms need any supplemental nutrition besides veggies and fruits? Should I add crushed egg shells for calcium? Any protein? Is there a minimum amount of food they need a day?
