Hey Moon!

Do you dump some maple leaves or a few cat food kibbles in there?

There were some comments some months back on one of the lists praising the
use of dry cat food with white worms. The increase in white worm growth
rates were reportedly phenomenal.

I don't know if that stuff would foul the water.

A little food and you might have a blackworm machine there. ;)

Now I've gotta build a garage too? Just of course for worms and over
wintering native fishes.

All the best!
