I was concerned that the deluge would fill up the collection tray with rainwater and I would lose all my lovely worm tea, but NO! the design obviously keeps rain from falling into the collection tray - which is good.
Despite having had a lot of rain overnight! This wheelbarrow was next to the Hungry Bin.
I added some more material, about 800 g of mixed kitchen caddy waste, a small amount of cooked food and some roll roll tubes with compost inside which had held some bean plants, but they had been eaten off to soil level by slugs.
When I went back later the same day the tubes were full of worms all munching away.
Day 4, I added a about a kg of assorted waste, paper scraps, chicken droppings, weeds and tomato leaves from the plants in the polytunnel (I had been removing some of the lower leaves to let in air to the plants)which had been sitting in a bucket for a few days
I had a look at the waste and saw lots of worms busily working away with none in the lid so I think they must be happy with their environment.
See how quickly those cardboard tubes have disintegrated!
I laid some cardboard on the top surface so the worms had somewhere to hide under, and closed the lid for another day.
