Revisiting Goal #5: Learn to compost!

Wonder Worman
It's time to check in on goal #5, composting. We're almost about to the two month mark and I have to say that I had no idea how much vegetation I was throwing away. I have a daily reminder when I go out to feed my worms my leftover banana peels (toddler eats them by the ton), strawberry tops, compostable baby wipes and other veggies. But it's winter and well, I'm worried that my little guys might crock!

So what does Wonder Worman have to say? Here official statement on cold weather and worms reads this on her blog:

I am often asked, “Wonder Worman what should I do with my Red Wigglers during the winter?” 
Depending on my mood, I may reply…
“Oh, avid composter, don’t fear!  You can still feed your Red Wigglers!  Just put on your comfy, warm boots and venture out in the beautiful, fluffy white stuff and feed those wigglers.  Just make sure you add some soft, colorful leaves to the bins to create a thick layer of natural insulation.  You want to keep your babies warm!”
Some days, I can’t stand Central Oregon weather, and I may reply…well, I really wouldn’t say this.  It’s kind of rude…but wouldn’t it be fun.
“Oh, whatever, don’t worry about those dreadful, icky, cold, crappy, days.  Even though I can’t stand those days,  the Red Wigglers don’t mind!  Just feed them when you can! They’ll live.”
Thanks Wonder Worman. Now, I need to go get some leaves (no trees in my yard) and give them a nice blanket of insulation.
