Its dry!

Its so dry here in Florida that I have to run a hose to the worm bin every week or so to make sure there is enough moisture. We desperately need rain and no matter how good a fertilizer the castings are - the plants are sloooooow growing without a consistent moisture level. We should all do a rain dance!

Thank you for your comment on my cooling system.
I noticed that you said that you were introduced to vermisytems by research. I am curious do you do research in soils, entymology or any related fields?.

Hi Tiffany,

Since you live in Florida, I have a question I'm hoping you can help with. (I live in Tampa.) I have a stackable tray system and keep it indoors. I've been wanting to start a bigger wooden bin outside, but I'm afraid the heat might make it a futile attempt. Do you have an outside bin? Do you think it's possible to keep an outside bin here?

If I start an outdoor bin, I plan to get some African Nightcrawlers. I've heard they are more adaptable to the FL temps.

I don't have a shed to put them in, but I do have some shade.

Tiffany, I'm in California so I can sort of relate to your conception of "cold snap". (Average temps in the SF bay area are much lower than where you are.) A week in the 40s ºF is unlikely to harm your ANs as long as your bin was sheltered. Bin temps (compost/bedding) are usually warmer than air temps.

You might want to check out this current discussion on Heating an indoor bin

Does your squirm still prefer "Bread, rice and potatos"? I've heard the first two can heat up a bin if fed in sufficient quantities. Have you noticed that?
