Compost is the perfect soil amendment, and it’s free for you to make at home. A compost bin needs to have space for the dirt, scraps, and other items you add into it. It needs to have drainage holes and air circulation. Pretty simple, right? One can really lower down the garden maintenance expenditures by building the compost bins in his garden!
Moreover, you will also get the free supply of the compost for better growth of your garden plants, and there are several different benefits more of the compost bin! It’s going to getting really chilly here in the next week so it’s a good time to start thinking about how to protect our worm friends from the cold. Now, here in Southern Nevada when I say cold I mean it’ll get down around freezing overnight. To set up a bin you can start with any quantity of worms. Some websites say to start with a pound or 500 worms but truthfully if you can get a friend to share even a small quantity, in the right environment, they will multiply to fill the space perfectly.
So, compost bins can also help in your outdoor landscaping by reducing the garden clutter and trash and even the garbage! Yes, it does happen from time to time and it usually only lasts a few days, thankfully. I really don’t miss the crazy cold winters that I grew up with in the upper mid-west. But it’s best to be prepared and protect your outdoor worm compost bin from the cold winter nights.
