I just bought a rubbermaid container, what are the things I need to do to it, and put in it to be ready for my worms who are arriving in the mail?

She stole my idea!! It was an accidental idea, but my sister started composting last summer, we got rained out of fishing (thunder lightning, armageddon, not just rain) Knew the worms would not last so we put them in the compost. Wow, those are some fiesty worms, I think they might actually smack some of the smaller fish. Ours is outside, but for the winter we put an extra thick pile of leaves on top and the are fine. I don't know if these are desendents of the original nightcrawlers or what, but it does make me feel virtuous. One of the things I like is puting the worms that don't get used back where they came from.
