Nothing earth shattering here. I just modified my diy worm bin to meet my needs a little better.
-two 2 x 4 foot bins for castings
-one 2 x 4 foot bottom to collect worm leachate (microbe rich juices)
Original worm bin plans – https://www.growingagreenerworld.com/how-to-make-our-custom-worm-bin/
Problems with original worm bin:
01. Top bin was never used because I have tiny T Rex arms that couldn’t grab the 2 x 4 foot bin safely to access lower bin (when it was full of 75 pounds of castings). (Eat a big fat dick if lifting 75 lbs is nothing to you. Jk, but not really).
02. Not worm bin related, but my soil would freeze at times when it was in storage/garage.
03. Worm bin was fine, just not as dank as it could be.
Separate top bin into two smaller bins that are more manageable.
Now I can easily remove the two smaller top bins that will be filled with worms and castings (red wigglers typically prefer the top 6-12ish inches so they are less likely to go to the middle bin).
The large 2 x 4 bin beneath the castings will hold the soil I plan to use in my future transplants, companion plants, and anywhere else I need. The big benefit here is that my soil will have a continuous flow of microbe rich fluid draining through it as it drains down to the leachate bucket.
Anywho, not trying to get e-blown for the idea, just trying to share with anyone looking for an idea for their garden.
Also, if you use pine instead of cedar you could save a bunch. I paid too much to build this, but I am a sentimental douche and wanted to work with cedar again.
