Melbourne heat wave claims 2000+ lives!

RIP Worm farm :,”-(

The string of hot days in Melbourne has led to the mortal demise of the occupants of my worm farm.

Keeping them wet didn’t help with multiple days over 40 degrees.

Tumbleweed recommend taking the lid off your worm farm when it gets really hot.

While its a bit late to save the previous occupants,  ive now read some good tips to keep the next tenants of my worm farm cool.

The best idea I read was to make massive ice cubes with 2 litre milk bottles!
