Earthworms

Filed under: Garden — work in progress @ 4:33 am

I bought some earthworms today. The sales clerk was very nice and gave me a good batch. From what I have read is they sell them by the weight and these guys looked pretty good sized and active.  I watered the compost pile setup for the garden.  There have been flies coming out and I hope the earthworms do what they do best.  Make good soil, eat the mosquito eggs and breed.  I have it covered up with hay and its 3 bales of hay to form a square with the back wall.

From my research, it says that the optimum temperature is right now till maybe April.  When its gets to be hot, I’ll try to get it covered and water every other day.  Not worried about food for now because there is enough leftovers in the house.  Worried about the cats though getting the idea its a drop off box.  But so far they are not too interested in it.  When there is enought of a population of earthworms I will transfer some to the garden and potted plants. Its the plan anyway.
