Herman Gets Too Big For His Boots

Or would if he were being contained in assorted footwear.  As it is he’s been bubbling up to the top of the pyrex bowl he’s been fermenting in.  I figured the bowl would be big enough for him but No!  He is increasing in size and this morning, when I found out he’d gunked a third tea towel by growing so much (tea-towel draped over the bowl to keep out flies) I divided him a day early.  So now I have 4 Hermans.  1 in the ice-cream tub he originally arrived in, two in old chinese take-out containers rescued from the Scrap Magic bag (don’t worry – I’m not sending out skanky Hermans – I washed all the containers first).  And the 4th, the Herman who will be staying with us, I put in a bigger bowl.  I’m quite looking forward to feeding him again.

Oh poop – I think I was supposed to feed & then divide.  Never mind – I can deal with that tomorrow just before I pack the ‘baby’ Hermans to go to their new owners.  If I feed them today I think I may need bigger containers!
