Have seen a few folks chat about how well a dry worm food works in their farms in boosting growth & numbers of worms so thought I would try some myself.. Found a few dry goods in the pantry during a clean out the other week so have been using them to make up what looks to be a very tasty blend..
Have also started to wet down the dry feed with a 1:20 un-sulphured molasses & water mix.. This will add some sugars to feed the bacteria & add trace elements for richer castings.. Molasses can be bought very cheaply in bulk from farm feed/produce stores..

I have seen a friends post about making his dry feed up from chick starter pellets, Thanks Steven, & have also found a few other recipes on line that may interest some..
