"I've been using a screen that fits my wheelbarrow for years but I hate cutting worms up. I can't believe how many worms I have in that compost bin this year. Guess I can give that a try if I remember to take a pile out when I'm out…"

"Well I got my worms on Tuesday and the little babies are settling just fine so I must had set in up right. I fed them 2 times already but not sure if I needed to. I am so stoked I got Honey Bees Thursday and the Worms on Tuesday I feel like a little…"

"It is good to find out a plants real name, so many have the same common names. The common names change depending on what country you live in too. So when you like something that has been posted, its still hard to find."
