Frozen bedding still has worms...

Winter still has me in its' grip. Knee high snow and freezing at night. Daytime nice but is it enough?

Took a walk out there yesterday, gingerly walking on the surface of the snow. The bedding is frosty, no worms to be seen. But what's it like down in the bin? No way to know till I can get my hands in there and dig around. The compost thermometer reads 28 degrees. It inserts and removes easily.

I decided to turn off the heat to my bins because I have one bin that has been without heat for two winters now and that bin has been the happiest of them all come spring. Yet this winter is like one we haven't seen since 1968. Go figure. I'll just have to wait and see.

Wait and see.
