My Solution To Holding My Harvested Worms
Greetings fellow earthlings,
Apologies for being gone so long. Time flies and I had no idea I had been away and without a post since April?
Life has been busy here with the start of Market and active worming season.
Summer has been hot, high 90's, but the bins have remained in the 60's so the worms have been happy.
With time being of short supply, I have had to be creative in order to not have to re-harvest my worms over and over every week if all of the worms did not sell at market. This is what I have come up with for holding bins for the active season.
Before I had my Tortilla Redworm Holding Bin I would spend valuable time harvesting worms, packaging them in my brown paper bags and then if they didn't sell I would have to just dump them back into the worm bin.
Now I can harvest worms, take them to market in the holding bin, package them if they sell, or hold them in the bin for the next week if they don't sell. In the holding bins I can continue to feed the worms, keeping them happy and in fact fattening them up until the next opportunity to sell them.
As I continue to work the big bins, turning and harvesting worms I rotate the oldest harvested holding bins back into the big bins.
Thanks for checking in with me.

Nice to have you back among us again. Your Tortilla Redworm holding bin certainly seems like a great idea for both you and the worms. So much easier than individual packages when transporting them to and from the markets and the worms stay at just the right temperatures too.
Efficient idea! Welcome back wormnwomn, I missed your wormy knowledge.
