Got DIY Skills? Make your own rock-solid frame using whatever you like. But we've got easy-to-understand plans to build your frame using 2x4 lumber and PVC.
As always, this bag is great because of the people who made it and the thoughtful and caring company that supports it. Version 2.0 has velcro on the bottom to replace a zipper, which prevents corrosion during harvest. Also the zipper along the top seems beefier? My advice is to build your own frame using 2x4s. Steve has a guide you can follow that works really well. I had the folks at Home Depot cut the pieces for me and constructed it at home. It’s much sturdier than the pipe frame, which helps during harvest when you’re moving the bag around. Speaking of moving, if you do build your own frame, invest in the optional casters at the bottom. I cannot emphasize how useful this has been for being able to clean and sweep on our small patio. If this is your first dive into vermiculture, it is MUCH easier than it looks. The worms are very resilient, and any problems that arise are easy to solve. Remember you are buying a product backed by Steve, and Steve is a seriously amazing guy. I could go on. Enjoy!
I had it for awhile before starting to use it. I filled it on May 1st so I haven’t even been using it for 2 months, todays date is June 22, 2022. But so far so good. I have it in a shed where the temp gets pretty high. I have a fan in the shed to keep the air circulating. I read the email about using frozen bottles of water so I am doing that and the worms seems to like it. At least they haven’t all died yet. My plan is to put a window in the shed and hook up solar power so that I can have a/c in there. I was hoping I would already have that by this summer but obviously things take time but the worms are managing ok.
Thanks Steve for responding so generously and immediately about my concern. The new bag is great and the worms are thriving in their new digs.
Fast shipping and a quality product.
worm bag is fine, easy to replace from the zippered version and I am so glad it was free, but please don't joke about kidneys, my friend needed a kidney, my friend gave a kidney, its a very big deal thanks
