Expanding from a worn inn
I currently have a worm inn and have had it up and running for about 9 months. So far I have harvested at least 6 gallons of nice compost from it. At the rate we cook our family creates more veg scraps than I think a single worm inn can handle.
I just weighted the scraps from a little less than the last week and got 3.25 pounds.
I am thinking of building another FT system.
At the moment my worm inn is full. I took it outside yesterday and emptied it in a wheelbarrow. Now it is homoginous but it looked to be doing well and had a lot of worms in it. Some areas were heating up but worms were present in that area so I don't think the heating was too much.
When I start the new bin I am thinking about emptying the worm inn again and splitting the contents half and half between the new bin and the worm inn. Is there any reason this would be a bad idea? I was also thinking of mixing in a bunch of bedding and new food to the top half when I start the new bin / restart the worm inn.
These bins will live in my basement - where the worm inn currently lives.
