We truly have no room for a worm bin in our house. We live in Virginia Beach which sees below freezing only a handful of days a year.

Dawn, we keep our bin in the basement where the temp is usually in the mid-50s over winter. Any way you could add some heat in your garage? Perhaps insulate the bin and put a brooder lamp under it?
The aboriginal people of the world and many other cultures share a common respect for nature and the universe, and all of the life that it holds. We should learn from them!

We could do that. Thanks! It can be so frustrating hitting wall after wall when trying to make the most of everything -- size of land, house, finances, etc.

I hope that works for you Dawn. We've been in you position, and it's is frustrating at times. It gets better. Thumbs up
