Some days I don’t know why we ever spent money on toys and movies. Today was one of those days. While the Gustafson kids were over for piano lessons, they decided to amuse themselves by digging for worms. I told them to go nuts in the vegetable garden, and they did. They got out all of Robb’s garden tools, and they dug some pretty big holes.
I was told they were digging for worms, and they came in for a paper towel to put the worms on. Before long, they came for a second paper towel, because they had “found so many worms!” I don’t see how they could possibly avoid them, frankly. Our yard is the worm mecca. It’s the worm whaling wall. It’s the place all worms must make a pilgrimage to at least once in their life. It’s worm Florida, where all worms go to retire. It’s the Mexico City of the worm world, population 15 million!!
Quinn showed off a small sample of the worms they found. They are still small because it is so early in the spring. Give it a couple months, and the growth and reproduction rates will both have increased exponentially!
