How you use your worms
Hi everyone...I've been reading your posts about vermicomposting but am not sure when and how you actually put these worms to use.
Do you grow these for selling as fishing worms or to put them in the garden and turn the soil under? If so...how often do you need a new supply of them?
How fast do they multiply?
Do they multiply in the winter months as well?
When I read about people growing them indoors, I wondered why we need to protect them that way and why would someone ever need that many worms?
Do worms mainly aerate the soil for easier planting or do they nourish the soil as well?
Are these earthworms or a special kind of worm? Can we raise regular earthworms and get the same benefits?
Thanks for helping me understand the purpose for going to so much trouble to raise worms.
