worm farms

captaindirt(6/7)July 26, 2008

Sounds like alot of folks have their worm bins but does anyone here sell their extra worms and or castings?

Also, here where I am, the temps get up in the 100's for weeks on end and the winters get into the upper teens.

my problem is I have to have this bin outdoors and can't think of the best way to insulate things so they don't freeze or melt.

any and all suggestions are welcome.

I'd think some straw bales stacked around the outside would be good insulation from both heat and cold. Plus you could plant some salad on them. Burying the bin would also protect against freezing.
