sponge update

left the sponges in with the worms on top of some cardboard because I didn't want to crush them trying to remove the water. It's been a couple of weeks now and they're really eating them . They've consummd almost two of them and are leaving castings behind. I see no ill effects they seem to love it in there.. I don't fish this time of year so they're happy. This spring I'm going to use castings in my tomato garden .

My Euros seem to be regenerating well from this summers blast furnace weather. some of them have made themselves at home in the sponges so I'll bury them (the other sponges disappeared ) and use paper to remove excess water. They say a damp sponge is a place where bacteria thrive, perhaps that's the attraction.

My worms have moved into the sponges so I can't squeeze water our of them . I tried putting them up out of the bedding hoping they would leave, but they seem to like to drill into them . So I'll bury them and like the others they'll disappear. Now I'm trying news print to suck up the exces water.
What about the lead in news print when you feed newspaper.they don't use it for fish-n-chips any more.

heat wave

last month it broke records for heat 115+ lost a lot of euros, but they seem to be comming back now.. Have plenty of yununs, but they're still trying to escape. There's a space built into the lid where it fits onto the container.,wonder if it's a good idea to seal it with rtv or the like . I have holes drilled into the top and filled with stainless steel wool for ventilation..

Actually I've been keeping red worms over a year, but I'm just starting out with the Euros. I've done everything wrong with the reds , yet they seem to thrive. I'm careful with the Euros and they seem sickly maybe they have to settle in. Time will tell.

I have the opposite experience. My euros thrive, my reds die. Hm... Maybe because it is colder here?
