Thanks for your "take" on the rate of consumption. I think I'm currently feeding at most 1/4 lb every 3 or 4 days. I was wondering if it was the time of year or maybe a little chilly for them. They're in a heated garage where temps are around 60 (due to beer brewing) and I have been monitoring the temp inside the bin as well. Have discovered that they prefer sweet potato and potato peelings over plain spinach. It is kinda fun to see what gets gobbled up and what doesn't. And I have gnats/fruit flies (even though I nuke all food that gets added to the bin) as well as some little dark mites (?) that tend to move rather quickly. I think the gnats came from my plants potted with organic soils. The bin has been totally indoors so couldn't have picked up any pests from outside.
