Bins 2 & 3, Updates 26, 27 and 28. Looks like I’ve gotten behind on update posting. I’ve been so busy completing other projects there has been little time to edit videos and write blog post since late 2019. Mostly everything has been going well in the bins
Over the last several months we’ve gone from hot to cool to more mild daily temperatures. Worm activity slowed down in the heat then they became more active when the cooler temperatures arrived. Conditions in the bins has been good, no foul odors at all. During update 28 I found a roach in bin 3 so I’ll have to make sure to monitor for new born roaches. If they are in there I’ll have to start up a new bin with the existing worms.
We’ve let some food items expire or go bad. Things like jelly, bread and canned chocolate icing. Those have been added over the last several months. The worms consume the coffee as expected. I wasn’t sure about the bread or jelly. The bread and jelly was gone telling me they made it disappear. They don’t consume the potato skins but they do eat the potato off of them. All that’s left is the skins.
I think the trouble I had when I put potatoes in before was there were too many and the decomposition may have been beyond what they would eat. The thing I want to know is if they will eat the chocolate icing. That was put in bin 3 only. Next update is in a few days I’ll get my answer then. Questions? Comments, contact me here. The videos of the updates are below. -13
