Lettuce in my first worm bin.

"Eileen, the bin-within-a-bin system will not restrict the worms to the smaller bins. Worms can easily crawl up the sides of the bin. As Betsy suggested, you will need to put bedding in the larger bin so the worms that do wander out will have…"

Lettuce in my first worm bin.
