Worm Bins: Fruit Flies and Harvesting

On Sunday I harvested my worm bins. I also have a bad fruit fly problem, so last night, I left them outside to see if the cold would kill off the fruit flies, hopefully without killing off all my worms. It got below 40 degrees.

The two blue Rubbermaids make up one bin (the catch bin is not shown) and the four black bins are the Worm Factory bins (pedestal and catch bin is also not shown).

Here is a little baby wormie I found.
I gave away the few quarts of castings I harvested on FreeCycle.

    Good for you–sharing through freecycle is a great way to turn other people on to worm composting!
    I recently gave away about 1/4 of my worms this way.
