The Worm Pit

began its life as a cold frame.  Through out this past year captured worms were carefully transferred to The Fish Bait Motel.  The guys decided to check my work and see if I could grow worms.
I didn't object because I could get a free turning of the soil.
Yes, that is a night crawler!
Plenty of fish bait here.
The guys didn't admit I did it right
but they are going fishing soon.
Even Lizzy was enjoying the worm action too.

You know you're doing something right when you dig up earth worms in the garden! :)

Sitting on the deck at night, one can hear the night crawlers squishing n smacking in the yard. If I am going fishing, I go out after dark, and there are literally hundreds all over the yard. Great soil makes for great bait eh. I love this Fish Bait Motel you have built and nice big fat night crawlers too. Do you suppose Lizzy is thinking they might make a nice doggie snack. ha,ha Hi to Marcy n all.

What a cool idea! If I was somewhere other than cement dirt Arizona, I'd do it.

I have tried and tried to have a worm bed. It is just too hot and dry. I end up putting them in my flowerbeds for safety.
Someday though I mean to have one as nice as yours. It is such a nice one Gail.

Night crawlers are definitely a sign of healthy soil!! :-)

Fish Bait Motel - the worms check in, but they never check out again...
At least not willingly onto a hook!

Nice worm garden!!! If I run out of worms here, I know where to find some :-)

I am jealous of your worm pit. Maybe once we have something that makes good poo, we'll be able to grow worms like that, too.

Congratulations, Gail! :-)
