Our worms have been breeding and copulating at an extraordinary rate, so it was time to start a new bin. We had consolidated our worms for the fall/winter into one bin. But this gave us a great chance to get the older kids “reacquainted” with their worm buddies that they feed everyday with their food scraps in the lunchroom.
First shred newspaper that the worms will use as bedding and back-up food if your bin runs low. Add some water, soil, food scraps, and of course- red wiggler worms. It’s really that easy. With a good ratio of food to space, there should be no fruit fly problems. We then gathered some piles of worm bin mixture to pick out enough worms to start the new bin. Let’s get grimy and get our hands in soil- it’s been too long!
