How are our worms doing? They’re still alive! That’s good.
Are they happy? They haven’t crawled out to seek fame and fortune elsewhere, so I suppose they must be.
Are they eating up all their yummy apple cores? They get three apple cores a week from the library manager’s lunch. We don’t have very many worms, so we don’t want to over-feed them. So far there’s at least one of last week’s apple cores left, but we can’t find the banana peel, so maybe they ate that first. (No, they don’t really gobble it up with their little teeth. Worms don’t have teeth! They wait for it to get nice and mushy.)
We also found a melon or squash seed that had germinated. It must have come with the compost the worms were in. We planted it in with one of our geraniums. Perhaps we’ll grow a squash this summer!
Our friend E. says chubby worms are the best. I’m not sure if our worms are chubby. They look rather thin to us. Maybe they need to eat more.
We haven’t seen any baby worms, but we hope they’re down there somewhere.
