The National Weather Service didn't issue a personal warning that my patio Q School worm bin might experience flash-flooding. Dang. The tray under the bin filled with water, and the aeration holes of the bin let water soak up into the compost. Worms who weren't smart enough to crawl to higher ground drowned.
I'm going back to an indoor-only, one-bin worm operation. If the PGA* Tour worms don't finish the compost for use in potted plants, they have still saved me many, many trips to the dumpster already. I just need to know everybody is home safe so that I can get a good night's sleep.
It's ten p.m. Do you know where your worms are?
