Something slimy this way comes

I am a gardener and a fisherwoman. When you put both of those hobbies together it is only logical to want the best earthworms available. So I figured, why not? And got started. I had helped an old gourd farmer when I was 7 years old and remembered where his worms were. So I dug a 2x2 foot hole and lined it with fine mesh wire. I then mixed several things with the dirt from the hole to get my worm home cozy. Worms love organic matter because their sole purpose is to turn trash into good soil -- just by eating it! When I checked my worms a few months later--I did water them once or twice per week--they were huge! But I really had to work to find them. So I decided to build another worm hole and halve them. When it came time to dig them again, a friend gave me a tip--he said,"Place a piece of stale white bread on top of your worm dirt the night before you want worms." So I tried it and it worked! The next morning a dozen real fatties were knotted together directly under the piece of bread--amazing!
