Worm World

Howdy Folks/Greetings, earthlings!

We can’t be the only ones genuinely fascinated with the residents of the worm farms and or the compost piles. 

It’s the very essence of why l became so enthusiastic with worm farming and composting in the first place over that of the more traditional gardening experience and rewards that offers. 

The one thing l noticed when l started researching worms and compost critters was the lack of the actual specific ‘worm’ images there was, and l figured, well, maybe that is something that worm fanciers like myself might appreciate seeing more of.

By taking these close-ups and macro shots of the worms, l came up with the idea of the Earthen Wurmin brand.

These galleries display to the reader the true inner beauty of earthwormery. Hundreds of photographs of the wormeries and the residents every month are taken, but only the best ones are displayed here.

Please feel free to use any of these images should you wish. Another reason for the gallery was because l could never find ‘just the right worm shot’. All l would ask of you is to award Earthly Comforts a credit.

I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

    1. Hey Angie,

      Well in some cases, it is simply an underbelly of the worm, other times it comes down to morphing and different species and hybrid species

      With the worms l have l have noticed a few colourations which range from blood red brown, to grey, to pink and also some are white pink.

      If you look at the 8th shot, you can see what l mean by underbelly 🙂

      1. Eisenia foetida, Eisenia andreii and Dendrabaena veneta are the main species within the wormeries however there is also another species Enchytraeidae which are ‘pot worms’. which can occasionally occur in worm farms.

        I have three distinct worm farms

        1] Bokashi compost farm – which is the main compost bin that is fed with bokashi
        2] Bokashi clean soil farm – which is self explanatory but the worm farm is furnished with unsieved compost soil from the compost unit
        3] Clean soil wormery which is basically sieved compost soils.

        Occasionally in Bin 2 we see pot worms because it is a slightly moister bin.
