Thought it would be grand having a 60' worm bin though.
Limited experience and totally different environment .. that being said..
I prefer to have my worms in a container.. That way it is easier to take out rich soil and put used soil/ food for worms in.. AND once in a while do a total renewal of soil
(take out rich soil without adding deplated soil thus lowering total volume). this is where containers rock
When total volume is appropriate and still enough for worms to live in.. put all this to a ' temp home' with holes that allow worms to migrate..
put deplated soil in and 'temp home' on top >> worms will move shortly from temp home back to their home with new deplated soil.
While this can be done on concrete floor.. I do thing it would be a lot more work.
+ I do have to occasionally move my worm bin around .. much easier in container.
Container can be from 5 Gal to 120 Gal .. later requires machinery to move but if you have barn you might have machinery..
