Bins 2 & 3, Update 16. It’s been almost a month. Hard to believe that much time has passed. Still catching up on other projects. Not much to report this update. It was a hot, sweaty day, 90 degrees Fahrenheit. I did use a compost thermometer to measure the inside temperature, it showed 80 degrees F. That couldn’t have been correct because the substrate felt cool to the touch. I’ll use a digital thermometer next time.
The plan this time was to pull all the castings from the bottom to the top. That way the castings would get aerated and give me a chance to see how many worms are in the bin. I looks like both bins have plenty of worms, maybe more than the space can handle. I may have to start a new bin as I had been thinking. Both bins had that freshly dug earthy smell. No foul odors of any kind
Since I’ve loaded the bin up with a large amount of food I’ll come back in a week for a checkup. -13
