Worm Bin

Each of us have been given the task of choosing an observation place and noting down how it changes over time. I, Sam, have chosen to follow the worm bin. So I will be adding to this post over time.

Container used – bathtube.

End of September we added in the courgette plant cuttings, and put them in the worm bins. Already after a few days the decay process is noticeable. Underneath the surface, heat is gaining a little which will help the decomposition. We don’t want it too hot like a compost pile as here we have worms that like to live in moist soil around 15c degrees.



After 7 – 9 days the courgette plants are taking up dramatically less space and starting to rot and be eaten up by the bacteria in the bin. They’re getting smelly!
