"It isn't.  The stuff draining out the bottom is leachate, although it's pretty common to call it tea (leachate will be called tea, but real tea will never be called leachate).  That can be just liquid coming from the rotting…"

Thanks Woo, I visited the site that Steve told me to go to and I learned that different worms go to different depths in the soil. This information will be very helpfull.

I didn't know that the European night crawler was more heat resistant than red wigglers but I always liked how big they were. This is definately good info to know.

I have a friend named Steve who had a beautiful garden. When my friend Joyce and I would go to visit and if he wasn't home we would just go in his garden and work. He had the biggest worms I had ever seen and every time I would find one I would hold it up for Joyce to see (forgetting that she was afraid of worms). Boy, she had the funniest yell. I couldn't help but show her every worm I found.

I enjoyed your pictures you posted. What kind of worms do you presently have?

Thanks again for the info.

Thanks for letting me know about the problem with the video upload. I just tried myself, it is finicky with avi's. Although, I had better luck with "windows media" files (i.e. .wmv) Are you on a Windows computer? If so you can use "Windows Movie Maker".. which comes free with windows.. to convert it to wmv. Or else, I can try to convert it for you so you can upload it.
