I hope I don't kill my worms!
I just started my first worm bin. I didn't wet the newspaper first when making the bed. I didn't even put in enough newspaper. I used peat moss, newspaper, some mushroom compost and some composted cow manure that had a little bone meal in it. I added food too soon as well! I had some cilantro and some dill and broccoli that was going bad so I blended a 1.5 cups of that and smeared it onto one corner of the ben. This morning I got up and decided to have a look. I noticed, the bed was not moist enough, so I finally cut up a lot of news paper and wet them down and added, mixing the whole lot together. I checked them a moment ago, and there is a smell from the herbs breaking down. Please let me know how I am doing so far or if I need to start over... Thanks. Also, one last question - How cold can the temps get for them to survive outside? Thanks again!!!
