Hi all. we are fairly new to composting, dh bought me a bin for mother's day this year, and we are really committed to it.
We love not puttting our waste out in the trash, and the kids are always digging in the dirt for new worms to add to our collection.
What do I need to do to prep it for the winter. We are in NE. and it is already cold out. It was 17 last night, and I went to add scraps to it, and there are frosty bits inside the bin.
Do I need to cover w/ a tarp?
Add water now and again?
Add leaves on top to help insulate it ?
Do I mix in the top waste? I don't want to disturb the worms and expose them to the cold.
So may questions. There is so much info out there about this, but I always get good advice here on MDC!! :)
