Worms Go Great With Skirts

Knee socks. Sneakers. A varsity shirt. And, a lace-trimmed, twirly skirt. It all seemed like a perfect ensemble for a visit to a worm farm.

We need the worms for our little farm. And, we want to learn more about the soldier flies and how they make magical protein larvae for chickens to snack on – because chickens are next for us, after we plant.

And what’s even better? That in a skirt the tiniest human got right up in there.

They dug into compost to feel the heat inside. They held freeze-dried larvae, and then held a handful of live ones. And they were right there and ready to feel the full-sized worms wiggle around in their palms.
