Starting a new bin - in TidyCat buckets?
Several years ago, I had a wormbin in a large Rubbermaid tote. I'm ready to start one up again. We have a huge stack of empty TidyCat buckets that I'd like to use. I realize that the shape isn't ideal, but the price certainly is! I assume I'd need to keep them no more than half full, and use a few of them.
I plan to keep them in the mechanical room which has temperatures from about 68 to 72F.
I've been reading a lot here and other places online. One set of instructions said to prepare your bedding and add food to start decaying about 2 weeks before you get your worms. I know I didn't do this before, but I assume it would speed up the process.
Do you think I'd be OK with this shape bucket if I'm careful?
