Where to put your worm bin?
Worms like it dark, moist (not wet), and warm (about like we like it). If you have a location that is indoors, this is ideal. You can protect your composting family from heat, cold, wind, rain, and all the other variable Mother Nature has to throw at it. Hot and dry will kill your worms faster than cold and wet, but the ideal is 72 degrees F and enough moisture to get a few drops out of the bedding when squeezed. Worms are top feeders so the goal is to keep the top of the bed moist without getting the bottom soupy. This is why your worm bin needs holes in the bottom and on the sides. When too much moisture goes in it needs to have somewhere to go...and air needs to get in.

Great advice!! I'm going to pass this on to a friend in Holland who's thinking of starting a worm bin.
Welcome wormnwomn. Love your name, love your advice and love your occupation.
I'm taking notes, thanks wormnwomn.
Glad to see you here, wormcomposting is something I definetly want to do, so I'll have a whole bunch of questions.
Toni just informed me that she wants to start raising worms. Now I have to schedule a worm roundup and a worm drive to the worm market. Anyone know where I can find one of those tiny little branding irons?
