Now that summer is here, we’re getting temperatures averaging around 90 degrees +. And although we’ve had some rain recently, the conditions are very dry. This means that the bin is starting to dry out fairly quickly.
I generally go out about once a day now to spray the bin with a bottle sprayer to keep things moist, but not too moist. Ahhh yes, it’s always about finding that perfect balance in moisture. Not too dry, and not so wet that they’ll drown.
I’m considering changing this website’s name to “Adventures in Desert Worm Composting.” !
We’re not even reaching the highest summer temps yet, so more challenges abound. We have the worm bin in the shadiest spot of the house, so we may actually move it indoors if it comes down to that.
We’ll see how it goes!
