Do you have a crazy worm bin? There are many commercial

There are a lot of homemade wormeries around that are helping to recycle huge amounts of food waste in backyards, garages and cellars. We are looking for those crazy worm bins that you have designed and build yourselves. Do you have a container you decided to convert into a worm farm? Worms are not fussy! If you make sure their basic requirements are met they will live, breed and multiply just about anywhere.

In addition the worms have a shady place in case the sun decides to burn down on us
one of these days!
I will continue the experiment
and will tell you more about the worms well being and the speed of the recycling in the near future.
