Two bin system
Today, I went ahead and started my worm bin. I watched a few videos on YouTube and tried to learn from them. I opted for the 2 bin system and used two old sterile bins I had. I shredded newspapers and layered bin #1 with newspapers and kitchen scraps. Prior to this, I drilled holes on the sides and bottom of bin #1, as well as on the lid. I placed two bricks in bin #2 to elevate bin #1 and placed the prepared bin #1 on top of the bricks. I added some garden soil and water in bin #1 as well. Tomorrow I will be ordering my worms via e-bay. I am thinking about 250-500 worms to start off. My bins are small, maybe 15-20 gallons so I want to keep it small to start. If I like the system, I will definitely expand it and will keep ya'll posted. Wish me luck!
