The weather is getting cooler. Keep an eye on the frost.

The temperature has been dropping in Bend, letting me know that fall is here. This is the time to think about techniques to use for insulating your outdoor worm bins. Last winter was my first time having bins outside so basically it was my experimental year. I am happy to report that it was a success and plan on using the same technique this winter.

I made sure to frequently feed the worms delicious fall treats, such as pumpkins, gourds and squash. The worse they looked and smelled the better they tasted for the worms.

I also insulated the bins with hay, lawn clippings and leaves.

For more detailed information, check out my website under the “How To” section.

Web site is finished

It is done and am so happy to say it! I met the deadline I set and things look cool. I still need to add some pictures and Harold is reviewing the material.

My website is Red wigglers are pretty amazing creatures. Even in these frigid temperatures in Bend, they are still working. Well the ones I have are insulated with hay. I am sure if they were in the ground out in “the wild” they would figure out a way. Well they do figure out a way..they go deep in the ground, below the freezing line.
I will see what happens in a few weeks with the website. I am excited!
