    I knew there was a reason to my madness. I am always rescuing earth worms. Mother Nature tells me to do it I guess. And this is why.

    I pick up earthworms from the road and sidewalks after a rain and place them in my garden. He is right, the true measure of the health of our soil is the number of earthworms we find in it.

    Yep. That's why I compost. This fall, I want to compost directly to the garden soil and see how well it will turn out next year.
