Fun with BIG Worms
Typical Red Wiggler next to a SUPERSIZED EURO!
Eisenia Fetida(Red Wigglers) are cool worms. They swarm food and turn it into wonderful castings. Eisenia Hortensis (European Nightcrawlers), are even cooler! They do everything that Red Wigglers do, but they don’t run like a typical crawler (NOTE: Any worm will run if conditions are not right). Another benefit…you can get them as BIG AS SLUGS!
Dr. Atkins was right…carbs will make you fat. I got these Euros so fat, they start looking translucent instead of pink! How did I do it? I happened to pick up a big box of variety pack oatmeal at Costco. In the variety pack, there are some packs of unflavored oatmeal (Yuck)! I said to myself, I’ll bet the worms will eat this stuff…so I threw them on top of the Euro bedding (Careful, grains can heat up if mixed in)…the next morning…all gone. I tried it again…same results. After about a week, I had a bin full of worms that looked like slugs!
