Worm bin notes: Update 22 Dorian cools temperatures, worms feast

Bins 2 & 3, Update 22.  This is going to be a short update.  Last week south Florida was preparing for hurricane Dorian.  That created lots of clouds and rain.  The lower temperatures brought the worms back to full speed and they devoured waste added from the last feeding.  I had made preparations to bring the worms indoors if the hurricane was going to pass thru here but we were fortunate that it did not move into this area.

For update 22 the temperature in bin 2 was 83.3ºF, bin 3 was 81.8ºF with an ambient temperature of 85ºF, 70% humidity.  There were no noticeable odors in either bin.  We did have a couple of geckos in bin 3 but they fled the disruption.  Everything is in the video.  My favorite part of the updates are the before and after images that demonstrate how much waste those worms can consume when conditions are to their liking.  Video is below.  -13
