A coworker gave me worms
Even though worms aren't necessary for proper composting, I thought it might help the process. But the local mega-hardware store wants $28 for 500 worms -- and I don't need 500 worms -- just a handful, and they will grow and multiply.
I sent around an e-mail at work to all the people I chat with, no one had any composting worms for me. I wanted the hearty, red worms -- not the generic garden earthworms.
But then! A co-worker who I rarely talk to (and thus, I didn't include in my e-mail) offered me some from her "worm farm" tower. Brought it in today, and I took 'em home.
Happy little fellers. They seem contented in their new home.
