On Thursday I went back to a friend's horse farm to see how the resident population on worms was doing... and harvest a few for my garage farm makeover.
The first turn of the shovel revealed a healthy mass of red wigglers and a few larger companions.
I expect that the adults over-wintered deep in the manure pile where things stayed warm and moist. The guys I was seeing definitely weren't newborns and they were loving the spring temps.
As last year, I found more on the north side of the slope, which I think is because the sun warms and dries the compost on the south slope.
What a great way to restock my bins and garden beds for the summer!
