I thought i was overdue on starting my second trash can composter… the first one has had a bottomless pit for the last few months.
I was certain it would have been at capacity awhile ago, but then I took a closer look.
Not only were there a ton of red wigglers in there breaking it down, but also gobs and gobs of grubs- excellent!
They’ve been a huge help for sure- the pile has been steadily cooking along at a mellow 80 to 90 degrees since its inception, which wouldn’t be hot enough to break down the contents so swiftly.
Once the temperature drops a bit more, I’m going to try transferring as many of the worms over to the big pile as I can…hoping that it’s thick enough to insulate them through the winter- we’ll see!
