Glad you joined Lupine. You'll find like-minded in this thread- Vermicomposting-Worm Farming
Thanks for the link Lot's of good info and debate.
It seems it just keeps coming back to knowing your local non-natives and invasives. Sometimes, what is a terror in one region may not be able to over populate elsewhere...
As a northern girl, I am anti-worm....

I'm anti-worm too. Don't know what I'd do if I lived in the south where they have both native and non-native worms.

Hmpf, good thing you have some redeeming qualities, I think? Vermicomposting is a good thing, and worm poo is goooooooooooood stuff!

If it isn't her worminess showing up.

This spring in your honor I'm going to create an elevated worm feeder for the birds. Every little bit helps

LOL, too funny.....

Sorry to the OP for hijacking your thread with the WORM WARS....

We had a lots of small wildlife at the feeders before today's "blizzard" started. I have parrots (all rescues) and I save the stuff they toss out (parrots spill half of it) to add to the wild bird feeds.

Another tender-hearted soul saving the critters! How sweet.

I have recently seen several cardinals, tit mice, chicadees, and an occassional bluejay. I have also seen hawks flying nearby no doubt observing the species feeding at the feeder
