That's one funky-ass guitar. What is it?
Have also not seen worms. My inground pool is usually pretty well stocked and stinks during start up. Bee’s seen a few, more wasps though.
Bald Eagles we seen pretty frequently, maybe saw 2 circling high over Dundalk. ( man, I stepped into that one...) but coulda been a pair of osprey.
Saw a copper head swimming at the Marina at Hard Yacht yesterday......
I live on a barrier island that is a limestone structure with a veneer of sand, not the best environment for earthworms.
So when they magically showed up in my compost, I was pleasantly surprised. Now I cultivate them in my rotating compost bins, adding them to fresh batches once the compost has cooked a little. I also add them into my container vegetables.
I have great memories of maintaining a fishing worm bed with my grandmother when I was a kid. She taught me to go out there and sprinkle corn meal on the surface an hour or two before digging for the evening’s worms. That would get them up close to the surface so you didn’t have to dig deep to get a can full of worms. Cane poles and panfish ensued. Fish fry the next day.
Ya., interesting. My wife found a couple gardening, but, not many
When we were kids we would spray water on the grass and go out with flashlights.
Wasnt that a Joan Baez song..."where have all the earthworms gone, long time passing" ?
It could be just another very bad sign of things to comes. You know, right around the corner. You been using heavy chemicals on your property? Neighbors?
I can ship you some.
I'm near you, and we seem to have the usual amount. Maybe somebody's stealing yours under cover of darkness. Put out a trail cam.
Has it been real dry? Right now I have tons of them. But by mid summer you wont find them.
Long time passing. (When will they ever learn?)
A LONG TIME AGO on the distant borders of Snappy Town (Walnut Creek and Pleasant hill I had business the took me to a NHL caliber Worm Farm.
Above Ground beds that were big, not olympic size big but big no the less, and all of these bins had cultivated and sorted colonies of different worms, lot's of them. The worm rancher sold them buy the pound, still in their "native soil to any one the had the need.
Earthworms haven't done well in my yard this year. They like to live under our two Japanese maples. It’s not like there aren’t enough of them. It’s a predator versus prey thing. Three fledgling robins are out of the nest. Mister and missus spent two weeks hunting non stop to feed their young and now the young are out foraging on their own.
Be very careful around them "balled eagles", they can be some testy sumbitches.
'Where Have All The Earthworms Gone'!!!
Didn't Pete Seeger write that one?
Ha! that was honestly the first thing I thought when I read the thread title
I thought I spelt that wrong
Ah well, half the joy of this forum is giving people heck for their spelling mistakes
We have a few varieties here down under - the local variety here in Victoria does like the rain and these are in fact endangered - as well as really huge.
