Scarcely had we finished placing small food tins around the legs of the worm farm table when we realized that these, although for free and re- purposing a recyclable item, were less than ideal. https://cradleark.co.za/modifications-to-the-cradleark-prototype-worm-farms
It took the ants about half an hour to breach this line of defence. We needed a wider “moat”. What then came to mind was a small plastic bucket enclosing each “foot”. However, we were worried about the feet which concentrate the mass of the table plus the worm farms , onto a very small area. They might easily penetrate the bucket over time. What should we use? The Lord in His time, lead us to small enamel soup bowels which were cheap, the right shape and much stronger. Problem solved!
