Vermicomposting

The eggs that were evident in my previous photograph of my Lamp Bulb Vermicomposter seem to have hatched. I am guessing that the small worms die off and their remains are Consumed by Bacteria.

Last week I introduced a few Morsels of Carrot, in stick form, into the bulb.

That first bag, a string bag loaded with Kitchen Scraps has been assimilated into the Vermicomposter matrix, as is shown by the luxurious coating of black clay, castings, with bacteria.
