The worms seem to have settled in and are thriving. No escaping. Eating lots. They don't even seem to mind the chilly temperature in our house. It has been around 50 in the family room during the day and at least 10 degrees colder at night.
The worms in the kitchen scrap bin seem to be eating quite well. It is getting a bit damp in there. Kitchen scraps seem to have more water in them than the garden scraps (old hay, frozen chard leaves, and some semi-rotted leaves from the neighbors trees.) We will have to adjust the bedding a bit to dry things out or they will start trying to escape again.
