Share your worm farm picture

5 May

There are many ways to raise worms and there are a lot of great ideas out there. Over the years we have posted pics of our bins and beds and some of our friends have shared theirs as well. Send us pics of your worm bin. Your idea might be the one to help someone get started or improve their set up.

We’re back!

2 Feb

We are selling Jumpers on a limited basis. We will be filling orders as we can. Feel free to text w/ questions on availability. Unfortunately, we don’t have european nightcrawlers or red wigglers in stock. Text or call w/ questions about limited shipping.

Please leave a voicemail we will call you back. We get a ton of spam calls.

We are pausing on shipping worms!

22 May

Bad news first. Unfortunately, we are having to push pause on shipping worms. With extended shipping times, and temps reaching into 100 degrees it is not safe to ship. We guarantee live delivery and these factors make it too risky.

The good news is our Jumpers are doing well and are available for local pickup.

Worms in the gutter

3 Jul


gutter4Cleaning out my “leafless gutters”  this weekend I came across an unusual find.  How in the world did they get there?   Your guess is as good as mine.  I’ve seen worms in some strange places, but this might be the strangest.

Worm Castings available for pick up

10 Dec



Need a Christmas gift for the gardener in your life? I just harvested several hundred pounds of casting this weekend just in time for Christmas.  A 10 lb bag at $20 can do a world of good for your winter garden or your potted plants.  You can also brew a nearly unlimited supply of actively aerated compost tea.

Stock Tank Worm Bed

One of the ways I raise my worms is in 100 gallon stock tanks.  My preference is to start with cinder blocks and a pallet on top of that.   This elevates and makes for less bending over when feeding or harvesting.  The lid doesn’t have to be elaborate and can be a piece of plywood laid over the top of your bin.  For a lid like the one pictured, you will want to use the metal instead of the plastic version.  The reason- heat is trapped by the plastic  and raises the temps in the hotter months.  The metal does a far better job of reflecting the heat.  There are lots of ways to skin this cat and I encourage you to put you own spin on it.  Look for things you have access to already and use what you already have laying around.  You’ll be surprised what you can turn into a worm bed.imageStock Tank Worm Bed

Beware of Worm farm scam sites

11 Sep

Several years ago I was hired by a DIY website out of Austin to film some “how to” worm composting videos. Years passed, and I had forgotten all about it.  Fast forward to yesterday,  I received an email from an unhappy customer that wanted a refund from a  (make money off of worms) website.  When I looked at the link I was shocked to see a video of me talking about worms.   I have no idea what this company is doing, promising, or selling.  The linked website and pictures below are NOT affiliated with me or

The story below using my picture is NOT about me, and I have no idea what they are trying to pull off.

Worm Farming Heat Hacks

7 Jun

Summer arrived early this year and it’s August in June here in South Texas.   Help your worms beat the heat with a few tips.

  1. Ice bottles.  Partially fill plastic bottles w/ water and freeze.  Add frozen bottles to your worm bins in the morning.  Pick them up and re freeze overnight and repeat.
  2. Shade.  If moving your worm bins in doors is not an option add shade cloth or move to a shady area.  Especially from the afternoon sun.
  3. Keep moist- Add a drip line and/ or keep beds covered w/ mulch or old rug.  Covering will protect worms and help keep in moisture.
  4.  Add insulation –  add more bedding and in ground beds are a couple of ways to keep things from heating up and keep your worms happier in the heat.

These are a few tips to help get your worms through the summer.   Share any ideas or successful hacks you’ve come up with in your part of the world.
