More kitchen scraps than bins can keep up with
I am finding that my one worm inn can only process about a third of the kitchen scraps we're producing. I expect the worms to be able to process more as they become more established, this bin is only 3 months old, but we will also be producing more kitchen scraps.
I won't be able to make another worm inn for a few weeks because of time and other projects.
We don't have room in the freezer for scraps. I had been just tossing bags of them in a snow bank but things have thawed out a month and a half early.
I see two realistic options.
1 - throw the scraps in my failed traditional compost bin. I had just kept adding stuff to it and turning it and it became a mixed mess of compost and garden waste. This is also cold now and will just languish until summer.
2 - start to mix the scraps into my raised bed. I am hoping to do a planted worm bed this year and this is my only bed without anything planted in it now. This bed is nearly equal parts by volume of peat, shredded fall leafs, and compost so seems close to an outdoor bin designed for worms. I plan on planting it with melons, beans, and maybe a squash or two.
Does my second option sound all that out of wack? Even if the worms fail to take it will still end up as composting in place like a disorganized lasagna garden.
