No it just tells ya when ya make a penny or 2 and counts the visits to our blog.  It has been counting the visits for 4 or 5 years now.  We have had 112K visitors in that time.  It is a great feeling to know that you touched that many people in a few years, and hopefully informed and possibly entertained them.  I just checked and yesterday it says we made 22 cents.  When I was that it made me smile and I said a prayer for the kind folks who visited and clicked,

Good news! The worms are alive and well in the amended Mix. All that powdered milk, and kelp, crab, blood, and bone meals did not harm them.

With all the rains we have been having worm population is way down in our yard.  They come to the surface when it rains and birds get them.  I did notice that our trash pile is teeming with babies though.  Never really thought about it but it is the highest pile in the yard so it stands to reason.

Some things are quite obvious after it is pointed out, isn't it?.  If I was a worm I'd be leaving for higher ground and cover to hide in from the birds.

Make sure you always have a pile of trash (future compost) around.

Being an ole country boy I have one pile I put household scraps leaves and garden clippings etc. on top and I dig compost and worms out of the bottom.  That gets sued in the garden or turned over and worms used for bait.  When it goes in the garden it goes worms and all...........They dont seem to mind and I am sure much prefer that transfer than the one into the bait bucket.

Whew. Started this thread almost 4 years ago. First bin started off with a thousand worms expanded to 10 bins through April 2016. Section of my basement became a busy little worm farm.  Personal injury led to losing all the worms when I could no longer care for them.  But such is life and I am able to start over again.  2,000 worms arrived this week and have settled into their new home. Fingers crossed and here's to many thousands more and lots of vermicompost for many more gardening seasons.
