Worm Bin Tower is Growing

Worm Towers is adding another level! I have three more trays to add before I'll have to empty the bottom tray of castings and start over. Several worms on the lid...


 
 ...including hatching eggs and babies! Cool!
 
 
I let this tray get a tad over-filled, oh well...

 
...I'll just add the new tray right atop the contents.

 
Put some dry shredded paper in the new tray. Seems very dry for now...

 
...but this watermelon rind will bring the wormies right through the mesh to this level-they LOVE melon!


More shredded paper atop the melon, it really gets moistened quickly by the worm activity.

 
There! Kinda wonky for now....

 
 ...ideally the levels would be a little more even. Luckily there are no building codes for Worm Towers...
 

...and as it gets taller I'm hoping it won't matter. I'm not sure how much the levels weigh or how strong the legs are, but I guess I'll find out. Luckily my tenants don't have any wormy litigators if there are housing issues  :)
