Make sure you leave it outside. Otherwise you will have to make fruit fly traps.

You silly canuckians. I have never lived in a place that DID have city composting. I mean, yeah, maybe if you hauled stuff to the landfill yourself they MIGHT have a big compost pile, but beyond that, us rugged individualist capitalists have always been on our own (and without the use of our legs, I might add).

That's all I have to say. Not sure how to set up a worm compost, though our bin does have worm in it. They seem pretty psyched on their setup.
When we started composting when I was a kid we didn't have city composting yet, but my parents have a big back yard and a couple of thos black composters.

Come to think of it, I'm not sure if the composting program was fully in place when I was in university out in Halifax. I'd like to think that it was, but I'm really not sure. Thsy certainly have it now though and the city also collects the compost from out where my parents live.

The entire time I've lived in Ontario though they've had city composting. It's nice because they'll take all sthose things you wouldn't put in your own pile (like fat and bones). The city of St. Catharines even started taking used clumping kitty litter a few years ago!

Make sure you leave it outside. Otherwise you will have to make fruit fly traps.

I doubt it would survive the winter if I left it outside though.

It would if it was big enough (like, bigger than a bin, unfortunately). Our patio pile does fine through the winter.

If your mixture is good(i.e. lots of leaves and scrap material, and you have a healthy bacteria population, it'll stay warm. If not, the freeze-thaw-rot-freeze will weaken all the cellular walls, and make it quick to compost in the spring.

I'm talking the worms, not compost. Worms don't freeze well.

Worms would survive if the pile was big enough. If not, they'll just make good compost with their rotting corpses. Like Doc said, it's win/win.

Keep it inside. I keep mine in my pantry. There's no smell whatsoever unless you dump a ton of onions in it, but then it just smells like onions for a week. Should I refer you to my blog post on worm bins? I'm hind of a big deal in worm comporting.

No, it wouldn't. I kept a worm bin in the garage during winter months ( unheated, but still warmer than outside. Worms barely survived, but at least their eggs did, and they repopulated once the weather got warmer.

I keep seeing ads for those worm composter bins that people CLAIM can be kept indoors without causing fruit fly problems or odor, but nobody I know has ever had one. Fruit flies were definitely an issue in summer.

Want to give out specifics? Like the size of the bin, how many/how big the holes are, how many worms/how much bedding did you start with, and how much waste do you generate approximately per week?

Also, how fast do you get compost, how often do you take the compost out, and how do you sift the worms and not-yet-digested garbage from the finished compost?

It was 80* here today. I'm not sure what this season has in store for me with ice, the front range isn't exactly known for it, though I do expect to get to Ouray a few times where the pitch:walk is much higher.

My ice season won't be as good this year if Nathan is away, but what can you do.

I wouldn't carez anyway, but gg is korrect. We're in the best 8-12 weeks of rock climbing for most areas in the hemisphere.
