Red Worms: for the outdoor composter

Redworms and European Nightcrawlers will thrive in an outdoor composter, and do as good or better than in an indoor situation. Any of the plastic outdoor composters make an excellent worm bin during the summer months. Any of the outdoor composters with redworms in them should be treated in the same manner as a worm bin indoors. The composter should be divided into four imaginary feeding zones, just as you would with an indoor worm bin. To do a feeding, using a long-tined pitch fork, which will damage fewer worms than a spade or shovel, pull back the compost in one corner of the unit. Dump your kitchen scraps into the cavity you have just made, and then pull the existing semi-finished compost over it, thereby eliminating odors and pests (insects and animals).

Your next feeding can go in another corner, close to your last feeding, using the manner described above. In a few weeks, when you are back at the original feeding zone, there should be little or no trace of the scraps which you placed there. Continue this process in an orderly manner. The worms will not survive outside in freezing temperatures, however the egg capsules which they have deposited will over winter and hatch the following spring when conditions are favorable.

If you wish to move the wigglers indoors for the winter, do not feed the composter for a week. Using your pitchfork, go to the last feeding zone, and fork the worms into a container. Using this method you should retrieve the majority of the worms, however you will never get every last one.
