With my 60 worms, I got right about 4-5 cups in a month and a half. Mostly just letting them eat the paper with a little bit of apple and banana peel. how much did your put out?
I never got the ones online because the shipping was almost as much as the worms.
I don't really pay attention too much but I get around 8-12 cups of castings every 2-3 months. But I am also lazy and do not harvest the castings often because it requires separating the worms from the casting. I probably could get more if I harvested the castings often. I also do not feed them very much. I am more worried about the worm bin crashing than trying to produce castings very fast. I have had instances in the past with other bugs showing up but now I do not see any problems.
I originally bought these worms to breed as food for some of my fish. But since I am also into gardening I get an extra benefit to keeping them. I don't think I have quite a 1000 worms right now maybe just a few hundred. That is pretty impressive the amount you get with the amount of worms you have.
