The good news is that things are coming along nicely with the project!
Early on I took things nice and slow. Other than the almost-negligible quantity of scraps I added during the set up process and a short time thereafter, there were only two small feedings (1.79 lb on Dec 23 & 5.39 lb of Dec 31). I was worried about a pretty serious outbreak of gnats and some form of large-bodied fruit flies in my VB48 system (since my Mega doesn’t have its screened lid anymore).
But this month has been a different ball game altogether. As you’ll learn in the video, I added 19.2 lb of food waste today alone!
IMPORTANT NOTE: In the video I said the total amount added since the beginning is 49.9 lb. That is a mistake – it is actually 42.9 lb (although maybe as much as 44 lb if the earliest feedings were included). And the “since Dec 31st” amount does include the Dec 31st feeding, just so you know.
Anyway, I am going to keep this update short – but if you do want to learn more be sure to watch the video and do sign up for the follow-along project if you have not already done so!
