Are there worms in that box, hibernating? Was it a contained system? Do you think they’ll survive? We don’t get that kinda snow/cold here in SoCal, but I’m curious how resistant these little guys are too those temps.

Haha – yes indeed there are. And they are likely mostly fine. I am amazed how little I need to do to keep worms alive in systems like this over the winter.

Something I always recommend with these sorts of outdoor systems is digging a pit or trench underneath. That definitely helps to protect the worms from extremes.
