Only had my Pod for 2 weeks. Arrived ok, no Aerate arrived. All set up and worms are in, though it’s very cold, hope they have not died. Hopefully in 6 months time o will have excellent compost.
Overall very happy with the product. Seems quite well built and think it should last a long time. Have been very successful with my first harvest, considering it is my first time. My SubPod has been a learning experience and all the worms disappeared. They are slowly coming back but I think the tropical heat is too much for them in if it is a hot day. I have a small frog in there. Not sure how that happened. Couple of things I think could be better: 1. The raised bed is very functional looking. For me that is fine. For my wife, she wishes there was a more as aesthetic version 2. Living in a city in the tropics we have bugs galore. Since I am mostly growing leafy vegetables which do not need pollination an adapter for a net would be nice. Different heights would also be nice so I could grow taller plants if I wanted. 3. The brown cover caps keep falling out. Needs to fit more tightly. Overall I am very happy with the garden bed. So far the SubPod seems fine. Waiting for all the worms to come back to see the results.
I really like the new Subpod I recently received. I now have 3 total, plus the composting unit and only used them for a short while this late summer and fall. Looking forward to planting some cool weather crops soon. The construction of the unit is very solid once constructed. You should add a note to the assembly instructions that there are 48 sets of screws to install to build this solid unit. It takes a lot of time, so people should be aware of that fact ahead of time. A Suggestion: Are you planning for a 'greenhouse' option in the future? I'm thinking that a plexiglass cover would be a good addition. It would both extend the growing season here in North America, Ohio in particular, and also jumpstart the growing season come Spring. Thoughts on this idea?
