The Incredible Earth Worm

By

Posted May 24, 2013

What can I say about the Earth Worm. Well, we can't be without them. Their airrate the ground in our gardens and fertalize the soil. They airrate our yards and are great bait to use when you are going fishing.

It probably sounds funny that I've owned earthworms but I have. Actually, when I was raising rabbits, the rabbit feces attracts earthworms and earthworm production.

I would also use the earthworms in large containers - something that resembles a rice steamer with several levels. Putting the worms on the top level, their droppings would fall down to the bottom level and you would use this as fertilizer for orchids or other house plants and even in the garden. These droppings are strong so you can dilute the dropping with water. This was a great way to make a little extra income as I would sell this 'elixor' to greenhouses that grew and sold orchids.

Of course you can't go fishing without your earthworms either. These are incredible versatile creatures that don't bite and just wriggle around doing what they do best, airrate your garden and grounds. They can even attract the birds to your yard without having to purchase bird seed. Raising earthworms is a fun way to each your children about ecology and make great science projects for school. I say yeah to the earth worm for being so versatile and harmless.
