Outdoor worm bin winter update

winter worm bin update

close up of temp in worm bin

I wonder if a small plexiglass window in the door would help to raise the temperature enough to provide a small area of warmth?

Wondering if your bins would have held in more heat if you had surrounded them with hay bails. What temperatures did you drop to?
