BIG news for this worm grower/murderer
My pseudo-husband hates worms in the house, because I went overboard and had too many bins several years ago, making it a crazy place. I couldn't seem to stop! So when I went too far, I REALLY went too far. I don't blame him a bit.
But I love creating compost, in every way possible...almost more than growing my garden. I don't know why, but I do. Making great garden dirt is a thrill to me. Seeing it change.
But when he saw my upset and grief at the demise of a large number (amost all) of my worms from the intense heat here in Missouri, he had a change of heart! My remaining worms and their eggs are now out of the screened in porch and in the basement. So far after a few days, not a single bolt from the bins, even though they must by necessity be near the washer and dryer. I feared that would cause upset, with the noise and vibration.
I think they're just so relieved to have cooled off that they'll accept almost anything! For a while, at least. It's a major victory here at our house! So I just had to let you know. It's good to have folks who understand, even if they're virtual strangers as many of us are. I guess I'm saying...
Well, hell! I appreciate this forum and the people who offer advice and opinions here. Nobody in my real life is willing to even talk about it. In fact, REFUSE to do so. So thanks, you guys!
