While harvesting some stuff from my SFG a few days ago, I found an earthworm and a green caterpillar. That might not sound strange at first, however, my SFG is on my roof (maybe 30 feet up) and the soil is all Mel's Mix, nothing dug up from the ground. Just curious how the critters got up there -- perhaps carried up by birds?

Caterpillars are the larvae of moths & butterflies. The adult lays the eggs right on the plants the larvae will eat. I don't know about your earthworm, maybe it hitchhiked in a bag of compost or something.
