Vermiculture, revisited...Ok, I found the link for some worm bin plans I like;

http://www.klickitatcounty.org/SolidWaste/FilesHtml/Organics/OscrJunior.pdf

So when I put mine together and fill it with wormies, I will post the startup...this way, I'll have witnesses that there were actually live worms in it at some point! Of course, I could buy a bin/kit, but where's the creativity in that? (Besides, they're like $100!) I may go ahead and purchase worms this time, too...I'll provide that link when I decide on a source. Worm ranchin', here I come!

SWEET! I'm so on board with this, as I've been looking for a cheap way to get into vermiculture and have a bunch of those kinds of boxes. (I'll just evict the holiday ornaments, no big deal! lol.) Please keep us updated...

Where are you putting yours, by the way? I'm thinking that I'll set mine up in my cool-but-not-cold basement for the winter...

I'll probably put my bin in the kitchen, I have an antique chair that's decorative use only. I keep my house pretty cool, though-except I don't think vermiculture worms have to be kept all that cool, unlike bait worms. I should be able to provide a worm-supply link when I get home tonite...I had researched this a couple years ago and found a company that promises not to "rough up your worms", and only uses non-mechanical means to harvest and sort them. The info is at home...and I am at work..shhh...don't tell my boss ;) !

Oh, I don't think that they have to be kept cool, either... my friend Dave has his out in his garage, but that's attached. So I was more thinking that his attached garage would be closer to the temperature of my cool basement than of my own unattached garage.

No roughing up the worms, huh? Lol... sounds like a winner. Thanks for the info, and I promise not to tell your boss. ;)
