Help me pick a worm bin!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I almost clicked submit on an order then chickened out.  I've looked at the Worm Factory bins, especially the 360.  I've considered making one myself.  I saw a gorgeous bamboo one endorsed by Daryl Hannah, but it was $900!  I also like this one.  This one is so beautiful, but I guess it's not sold in the US.

 

I live in FL.  It's mad crazy hot and humid here.  I'd like to keep my bin on my screened and truss covered patio.  One corner of it stays shady all day long.  If I have to keep it inside, I have a large utility closet that will do.

 

So please give me your recommendations.  Cost is a factor, but quality and ease of use is moreso.  Thanks!

I made my own.  it was too easy not to at least try it.  Used the roughneck bin from target, drlled some holes in it.  Still in use 3 years later :)

I made my own as well, with a heavy opaque Rubbermaid tote.  Keep it as cool as you can in FL, and call it good.  The worms will take care of themselves unless they drown or bake, honestly. 

 

(All of the gadgets and fanciness are very tempting, I know.)

Ugh, I know I should just do it with a Rubbermaid bin, and I have several in my closet that if I clean them out I can probably condense my junk and have a spare one, but I put so much effort into getting plastic out of my kitchen, I now have a mental block to using a plastic tub.  There's one on ebay made out of white cedar.  Will the oils in the wood hurt the worms?
