I am getting tired of paying 3 bucks for a handful of half dead worms, so I am starting my own bed in half of a split 55 gallon plastic drum . I built an off the floor support in a storage building so I can get to it without getting on my knees. I drilled small holes in the bottom, filled it with peat moss, and wet it down. I had about 100 redworms left over from several fishing trips that I dumped in. I realize these probably won't make it, but they would have died anyway in the plastic cups. How about some do's and don'ts about raising your own worms from you all who have done it successfully. Food? Moisture? Pests? Whatever I need to know and probably don't?
