    Can one raise worms in plastic garbage cans? I have five that I use to compost leaves and kitchen scraps. I would like to have some worms that will take me fishing often.

    p.s. I have discovered that I live in the same “hood” as you!

      Garbage cans will work just fine. I would be happy to help you get set up.

    I’m wanting to start a worm farm, but don’t know what to do after buying the kit and keeping it going for a bit. What do I need to expand the farm, materials, storage, etc.?

    Kyle….Now have four bins of Texas Red Worms working around the clock producing wonderful, rich, black gold for my garden.
    Also, have one WORM FACTORY unit with Red Worms making nutrient rich compost for the garden. Interested in perhaps some of the TEXAS JUMPERS to put in one of my garden raised bed areas. Hope to see you soon! Alan

    P/S i also have African crawlers that are doing well

    • Texas Red Worms June 3, 2013 at 4:19 pm #

      If your African’s are doing well, and you are having trouble with the red worms it could be that the temp is too hot. The other things to consider that could cause problems are the pH and moisture 70% or above. Red worms will get stressed at temps that African Nightcrawlers like. When temps get to 90F it’s time to cool them down. Ice bottles, controlled environment, increased moisture with some air flow. There could be other issues but if your African’s are doing well in the same type environment temp. is probably the culprit.

  7. I am new to area. I am very interested in attending a work shop for raising worms. I shared your ideas with my neighbor and he too wishes to attend a workshop March 30, 2014 at 4:27 pm #

    My neighbor can come to your worm seminars on weekends only… I am so sad we missed the seminar 3/29. Do you have anything else planned?
    Thank you for your shared info and passion for worming.

    I just became interested in raising worms. I’m happy to see that there’s a place near San Antonio I can go for help. I’m extremely interested in the jumpers I don’t care what state they are named for. I am also sad that I missed your last Garden fast. When do you plan to have your next one? I would love to go to all your demonstrations.

    • Texas Red Worms October 23, 2014 at 2:05 pm #

      Don’t have anything on the schedule until early next year at Rainbow Gardens. Will post when date and time are set. As far as the Jumpers, it has become my favorite worm due to its consistent performance, flexibility, and ability to handle climate and soil conditions that are too hard for other worms.

      • Lyle October 23, 2014 at 2:45 pm #

        I’m also interested in this. PLEASE keep us posted.

  9. Linda Ramirez October 23, 2014 at 9:17 pm #

    Do You have any jumpers for sale right now? I’d like to get some as soon as possible. And if possible I’d like to come and see your set up

    Any workshops upcoming? I would love to learn how to care for these worms and get my backyard farm soil and plants healthy with it.

      Sorry we missed your call. If you leave a message we will call you back as soon as we can. We have experienced a large volume of spam lately so we mainly rely on voicemail to respond.
