How much direct sun...
  • I think I want to do worm composting and I've been scouting where I live to a spot that is both reasonably convenient to the kitchen and good for the worms... how much direct sun can go on the worm boxes... all of the commercial ones seem to be dark colored which means I think, that they will heat up. What's the ideal placement... I'm in San Diego so heat is much more likely to be a problem than cold...

    Thanks.
  • North facing wall in most areas will stay shaded. Worm bins should be shaded as much as possible, especially in your warmer climate.
