Placement of Subpod. Shade or no shade?

If you live in an area with hot summers, you will want to provide some shade for the Subpod worms (and the plants) by picking a place that gets shade in the hottest part of the day, or by setting up a simple frame for shade cloth to be placed over the bed. 

If you plan to grow food bearing plants around your Subpod they will need at least 6 hours of sunlight, so some sort of seasonal shade cloth structure could be a good solution. We have even seen people plant an umbrella base behind their Subpod in the garden bed to allow a beach or cafe umbrella to be popped up in the heat of the day!

Subpod is the latest member of the Wiggly composter family. For more details and to order online please wiggle on over to
