This has been the craziest winter! I am in Dallas and quite a few of my customers lost power for 3-4 days in the record snow storm last month. A couple of them seem to think they have lost their worms (basically they were scared to look after the power outage)...I don't know, I told them to hold on and look deeper in their bin once the weather was warmer. Mine were in the unheated garage and outdoor trenches and did fine! Anybody else lose worms from the cold?
While my worms have done well, both in the outdoor trenches and the bins in the garage, I think I would have some faster composting and faster reproduction with weather in their preferred temp zone. At the same time, they have been growing in size and laying lots of cocoons, despite the cold. I have lots of worms, if anybody is needing some.
Here is hoping for an extended and lovely spring!
