1-2-3-worm bin

the begining of the worm bin

I started a new worm bin last weekend and I hope to finish it this weekend. I’m using the 1-2-3 box plan from renowned “Worms Eat My Garbage” by Mary Applehof. Note the sunshine last weekend. There is sun this weekend too, but there hasn’t been much inbetween.

Hand sawing was interesting from a huge piece of plywood, but worms do not demand precision. I think that they will like their new home even if it is a bit rustic. Almost anything looks better than a plastic bin with holes drilled in it. The worms have been thriving, in fact some nights when I put food in it looks almost solid with wigglers. The wood should alow them and their rotting envrironment to breath better. And, the dimensions of this box is better so it should be easier to keep the contents balanced. Check back soon to see the finished box.
