    Worm Beds

    Has anyone ever maintained a worm bed? What do you do and what did you do with the worms?

    I seem to have found myself taking charge of the care of some worms. I could set them free or I can figure out how to keep them alive.

    Re: Worm Beds

     We tried it a few summers ago.  We bought a 'kit' at a sportman's store.  We aren't sure what happened, we followed all the directions, fed them regularly etc, etc, and one day when my daughter went to check on them most of them were gone.  If I remember correctly we found directions on line on how to take care of them.  The few worms we did end up with were used as bait by her daddy and a friend when the went fishing.

    I've never done it, so here's advice from someone who doesn't know first hand... they say that they like coffee grounds and corn meal sprinkled on top of the ground. You're supposed to keep the soil slightly moist but never wet as they drown.

    I do know first hand that worms create rich, loose soil that will grow anything! If you ever want to plant a garden, find an area that has a lot of worms and the ground will be just right for it.

    That's a plus..maybe I can make my own rich soil this way, heh. Just move them from planter to planter, LOL.

    If you're careful with feed and water, it might actually work! Big Smile
