Adventures In Raising Worms: Lesson One

When showing your husband (or, anyone for that matter) your new bag of worms--make sure you tie the bag off TIGHTLY if you aren't going to be setting up the worm bin that day.

Failure to do so means that your worms will try to make a break for it. Fortunately, worms don't move that fast. Unfortunately, you'll spend about half an hour trying to pick off about 100-150 worms from various surfaces both inside and out of the worm bin*.

*Also, keep the worms in the bad IN THE WORM BIN. If I hadn't have done that, I might have 100 worms in my study right now.


  1. For some reason, I think I'd piss my pants watching you try to pick those 100-150 worms from various surface after watching you down 3+ glasses of wine. Hee hee... just sayin'.

  2. I was sober finding those worms. The funny thing is now that I have 1,000 worms to call my own, I'll pick up random earthworms that I see on the sidwalk or road and put them in the grass so they don't die.

    I'm like the Lorax but I only speak for the poor worms. :/
