"Yes I worms do take a bit of time to settle into a new home. This worm farming thing really isn't as easy as 123 It takes some time to get things settled in where you feel comfortable with what your doing."

Just wandered on to this site.  Pretty neat to have a place dedicated to the chit chat of just composting and nothing political or pop culture!    I've been composting for at least 15 years now with worms and find it to be a very fun hobby. I wouldn't even want to start my garden if I didn't have some fresh worm casting to put in it.. Once you've seen the results you can't go back to just plain old soil.    Well that's all for tonight.  Its a Friday night.. I need to get a life …
