Bins 2 & 3, Update 23. Looks like the bins are getting back to normal as well as the local temperatures. The heat wave has let up and the worms are becoming more active. Bin 2 temp was 81.8ºF, bin 3 was 82.2ºF with an ambient temperature of 86ºF, 69% humidity.
No foul odors to report in either bin. Both bins showed signs of the surface drying out. To remedy this I added more cardboard and made sure to push it down closer to the surface. This should help trap the moisture in. I’m sure the constant shop fan blowing on the bins the during the heat wave has contributed to the drying. Next time I check the bins I may add some water to keep it moist enough to keep the worms happy.
There was a gecko in bin 3 as shown in the video. It’s easy to see in both bins how few spiders there are in there. Don’t remember seeing any in bin 3.
These updates have been getting shorter in length since the bins are getting back to normal and I’m not trying much new with them. I’ve also decided to stop adding photographs to the updates unless I want to show something. I’ve been so busy with other projects I don’t have the patients or time required using an Apple computer and phone. Too many steps to do something that I could do much faster on a PC.
If I want to transfer photos and video from my iPhone onto my PC all I do is access the phone, highlight the items I want on the PC and drag them to the folder I want them in.
With Apple I have to open iMovie to get the photos and video to make the video. If I want to use the photos on this blog I have to open photos, transfer them to photos, then transfer them to another folder on my desktop. It’s become too much. Apple is not user friendly they want too much control over my property. Not cool.
I hope those few that do follow this part of my blog understand. It’s also why I make the videos, they have the same details. This blog is a place for me to write notes of the checkup and things I may have left out of the videos, and for future reference should YouTube disappear or the ban me. At least I’ll have some record. New video is below check it out. -13
