Do it yourself worm bin construction note

diy bin fix idea for warped plywood worm bin lidThe worm bin has been having a problem with unwanted visitors.

My solution for today was to add a 2x4 and some pieces of appearance board to the frame and part of the lid.

I'll know by next week if it's working, or if I need to take the worm bin armour level up a notch.

If we build another one I think we'll design the lid to have a slope and maybe attach some shower board to the plywood surface.

Sigh. The problem animal who Lucy helped break into the compost bin found a gap under the lid (when it warped in the rain) and tunneled into the worm bin. I found his scats, and am afraid it's actually a rat, not a squirrel. Grrr! I hope Mark's fix does better than mine did.
