The Wonderment Of Breeding Your Own Worms

I stand in awe at how amazing the humble worm is. As a keen fisherman I only ever used to look at them as bait for my fishing exploits until one day it was pointed out to me just what this little creature provides for our planet. It all started with another planned trout fishing trip with some guys I worked with. We decided we needed worms and we all knew instantly where we could get a ton of them. Across the road was a vacant paddock that couldn't be built upon and in fact large sections of it you couldn't even walk on. Apparently in the bad old days before environmental controls were enforced on companies the local abattoir had used this paddock to dump all of its fat.So we had this whole paddock filled with buried lard and the end result was millions of worms. So off we'd go with shovel in hand and dig up the fat and bust it open and gather the worms. The biggest problem was the worms usually stunk pretty badly because of the stuff they were living in.It was during one of these expeditions that one of my mates told me that the worms were actually turning the fat back into dirt. I couldn't believe it at the time. Do you actually mean to tell me that the worms pooh is dirt? How incredible is that? They chew in junk and pooh out pure dirt. If someone invented a machine like they would be praised by everyone wouldn't they? Oh - Hang on a minute, maybe not so - Someone did create such a machine, it's called the worm and the creator was God. It seems he doesn't get as much credit as he should. Anyhow this guy who told me all this stuff ended up breeding worms himself. I remember we were going to go on another fishing expedition I said I would go and dig up these worms again but my friend said not to worry he had his own. I didn't know you could breed your own worms at the time and he took me around to his house and showed me his set up.In his back shed he had an old bath tub which was kept in a darkened area. On top of the old bathtub was a heap of moist leaves and stuff and when he removed them he scooped up a large handful of what looked like very rich soil. Within that soil was hundreds of worms. We got our fishing bait within minutes, I thought it was magic.This mate of mind was are more avid trout fishermen then I was as I preferred salt water fishing and the main reason he started breeding his own fishing worms was because we were worried about the bad smell of the ones were getting from the paddock full of fat. Anyhow I can really vouch for how easy breeding your own worms is and if you do a lot of fishing then you'd be mad not to start your own worm farm.
