Just emptied my Garden Tower compost tube in the middle. Here is what I found …. black gold. This is the second time I emptied the tube. The first time was two months after I first put the food scraps in. Those little wigglers are working hard! The consistent temperature here in Vegas is average 105 F. I was so afraid that my worms would not make it, but how wrong was I. They seem to be loving it, as long as I keep the watering up.
