Although winter is far from over, it hasn’t been consistently below freezing for at least a few weeks…today was 60 F.
I remember going outside to empty my food scraps in the bin when it was well below freezing thinking that all the worms must have perished by now.
Fast forward to today, and I found one climbing out of the side. They must have burrowed deep to wait it out… glad they’re back!
It definitely helps speed up smaller scale composting efforts by throwing in some red wigglers.
