About Me:
We ( my husband Dennis and I) are just starting worm farming for composting, fishing and for our garden. The picture is of one of our dogs who is a wolf name Willow. She is two years old, loves all people, dogs, places and things. Her favorite thing to do is play, run and jump. She is mostly Eastern Timberwolf and a small part Alaskan Husky. We are starting a strawberry patch this year for both personal and hopefully commercial use. We are also growing wild blueberry bushes. We love to fish, walk, ride bikes and be togeather. My husband is also starting to design his own fishing lures. When we are at the ocean, my husband Dennis, goes surfing and I collect shells. We live in the mountains of North Carolina and love it.

UPDATE: June 5,2011 - On July 27, 2009, my husband was in a horrific car accident with Willow. Dennis was not breathing when they got to him. He survived, but with a lot of brain damage and spinal cord injuries as well as forming blood clots in his left arm and left leg. By the grace of God, (and against what the Doctors said he would be doing) he is walking, talking, able to think, comprehend and be a regular person. He is a little different personality wise, slower in movements and two inches shorter. Our garden was doing very well until that day and we no longer could care for it as Dennis was in the hospital and I was there taking care of him.. It fed all the wild life in the area and anyone who wanted to help themselves. Two years after, we are working in the garden again but he doesn't have the strength or stamina he had. The garden is theraputic and each year I see a little more improvement in him and the garden.

Update: 10/15/13 My husband is now driving locally and I am going to college full time and working as well. I haven't had time to work with my worm factory but hopefully this spring I will.

We are just starting in vermicomposting. Can anyone tell us if you can grow more than one type of worm in a composting bin. We are buying The 5 tray worm factory which can hold up to 12,000 worms. I was wondering if we could get more than one kind of worm so that I can add worms to my gardens. Any help anyone can give us would be greatly appreciated.

I'm pretty new to worm composting as well, but i noticed that the "Compost Guy" mentions mixing a couple different types of worms in one of his posts:

If you want to grow worms for fishing, I would recommend European Nightcrawlers. They are larger than the red wigglers and are great for composting as well. They are more heat tolerant than the red wigglers in a bait cup.

Hi Toby,

I am far from an expert on worms and have gotten most of my knowledge from reading about them on the internet. By Googling worms or vermicomposting or other key words there is a wealth of information out there. I currently have 5 worm boxes with red wigglers and Europeans. Both kinds are doing well. I have not mixed the two kinds, but may try that at some point. Happy worming!.....Woo

By the way, I like your wolf/dog. Tell Dennis I have been making lures for years. It is a very enjoyable hobby. It is a great thrill to catch a fish on a lure you have made. I have been selling my home made lures, rigs etc. on the internet for years. It is no way to get rich because it is very time consuming. However, I am retired and the extra money is nice. You can see my lures business at If Dennis has any questions about fishing or lure making, I am always available. Have a good day.....Woo
