My wife and I USED to be very organic... we ground our own flour and made our own whole grain bread. We made yogurt, sourdough culture, dried our own fruit, used honey in excessive quantities. But as we grew older, we got less and less organic and more convenience-oriented. We're not eating white bread and cheetos, but we haven't ground flour in a few years. This past summer, we wanted to grow some vegetables in our raised vegetable beds on our back property. The soil was pretty compacted - lots of clay here in northern California... so we looked into composting.
We ran across the Live Earthworms at Amazon and thought - why not? Let's try this. We ordered a bunch of Red Wrigglers from these folks and got them in a few short days. They were mailed in newspaper and, while I didn't count them, they all looked none-the-worse from their trip across the country from Pennsylvania. We followed the package instructions and put them in our raised beds and now - many months later - they're doing great. We feed them about every week with cutup vegetable trimmings, coffee grounds, eggshells, some wet newspaper and these guys are living large. But even better is what they're doing to our raised beds.... the soil they've lived in is soft, loamy, nicely textured, and looks and feels about ten times better than before these guys called it home.Read more ›
If you want to receive worms alive:
* Don't order them in the middle of summer. Really. Even if they have a short journey there are too many things that can go wrong. Instead check findworms.com to see if there might be a worm farm within driving distance.
* Order from a company fairly local no matter what time of the year it is. If you are on the west coast then you are taking your chances ordering from a Pennsylvania company even in cooler months. I once had a Priority Mail package take over a month to go from Maryland to California. Good thing it wasn't worms! Check out vermifactory.com in Oregon, among many, many others, just do a google search. But make sure you are ordering from a worm farm and not just a company that is having worms drop shipped from across the country! If you can't find a local worm farm try PlanetNatural, they cost more but ship two-day FedEx.
* If you order from Uncle Jim give your mail person a heads up. Tell them you are expecting a Priority Mail delivery of live worms (the box is clearly marked as Perishable) and ask that they deliver them to your door. Then tape a note in your mailbox to remind your carrier. If you can't be home have them delivered at your work or at a neighbor's. It doesn't take long for live worms to die in a hot mailbox.Read more ›
The worms looked very healthy and were very well packed in a bag along with soil. The bag was then placed in a box surrounded with shredded paper. The earthworms were of all different sizes.
This is an excellent outfit to purchase the earthworms from. Its definitely worth the cost. It took a week to receive the worms after placing the order.
