Thought I'd try to embed some newly uploaded photos of the wormfarming effort.

These are a few of the worm farms in plant pots I've put under my Orange tree to assist it with keeping free of the Whitefly pest. It works. The pots are filled with worms and food and I rinse the pots heavily every two or three days to wash the loose wormcastings into the dirt. Some worms escape into the soil, which is fine, that helps the tree even more. The pots are for eating and breeding, and I move them to areas which need them next.

This is the standard stack up worm farm, which I started with and expanded into the clay pots for localized fertilizing. I rarely use all three slices. The bottom has a reservoir for collecting the wormcasting tea, which I store in the big bottle next to it, and it is diluted 5 to 1 or so for watering plants and veges in pots around the yard.

This is inside one of the clay pots. All of the pots around the yard are happy like this.

And you need a cat which keeps the mice down. This year I'm seeing many more tomatoes since the vermine aren't living once they come into the yard to steal my tomatoes!
