I seeded red worms into my compost about two months ago and decided they didn't make it since I never could find any when I dug into it. A few days ago I tore out my delicata squash vines to harvest them and there were some immature ones. I stomped on them and added them into my compost heap. this morning I was checking my compost and unearthed the delicatas. There were my worms; nice and fat and gobbling squash.
