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.

Earthen Wurmin’s Worm Facts & Quotes
The study of earthworms is called helminthology. Charles Darwin chose to study earthworms to complete his theory of evolution by natural selection. He learned that the movement of earth by earthworms called aeration and their gut chemistry helped with the fertility of plants.

  1. Oscar the grouch from Sesame Street ❤️ had a worm 🪱 named “Slimy” lol ❤️

    Worms are gentle so don’t bother me.

    I like worms 🪱- good creatures

    I hope you get the allotment – what do they want from you to have it?

    1. Slimy the worm is pretty apt as a name 🙂

      It’ll cost us £80 a year, that is a base cost, so if we took Plot 40 it would be 80, if we had a much larger plot it would also be 80, Plot 20 is 80. The price of the plots irrespective of size is 80, strange set up l think. But my philosophy is if l am paying 80 for a small or 80 for a big then let me have the bigger one 🙂

      1. Oh my gosh!! Big and little same price? Than yes definitely bigger!

        That is not too bad to rent. Would be $97.92 in American dollars

      2. I am pretty positive here in California at least – it’s expensive

        Most people do small gardens in their back yards

        No one wants extra work lol … and plus with economy I’m sure they not jumping at it… everyone tightening their wallets

        Also over here is not widely known as a thing lol

        I have seen them around Sacramento usually in really old lots of maybe a house that burn down? Someone beautifies it “maybe” but is always locked and weird … sometimes will say “community garden” and then be locked, so it never made any sense to me … it say “community”… that means everyone to me??

        I had no idea what was until you lol

        I don’t think this is much of an American thing lol 🤷‍♀️

      3. Yes l think many Americans have gardens big enough to grow their own vegetables if they wish. Not all do, but it seems that many American gardeners seemingly have big gardens, whereas over here in UK, not all houses have big sustainable gardens for growing in.

      4. Yes usually we have decent sized back yards – mine is huge!!

        If you were closer you could use one of my backyard (I have 2 sorta – one area is for entertaining but then there a whole other huge entire backyard – could fit another house in)

        I haven’t done anything with yet

        But yes usually yards are decent in size for that
