To bury or not to bury...
I've always heard that "worms like their dinner on top of their heads." So I was thinking about just laying the worm food on top of the bedding and letting the worms bring it down deeper into their dens.
I realize you'd need some sort of fine mesh screen over top of the bin to keep out flies and mice and such, but I've got a lot of old screen material. Do you think it'd work that way? Or are there other gotchas?
