wormy thanksgiving

Worms need holidays too.

I’ve been monitoring my jerry-rigged outdoor worm bin heater, a 3-gallon plastic pail sunk into the earth inside a converted cold frame.  Inside is a cheap 25W aquarium heater.  This morning the outdoor temperature was 26°, and inside…a balmy 79°.

And the little buggers got a feast of food-processed kitchen scraps, coffee grounds and cornmeal.


Happy Thanksgiving!
