|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.
The Autistic Composter/Earthen Wurmin
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

|Earthen Wurmin’s Worm Facts & Quotes|
Young earthworms are not born, they are hatched from cocoons smaller that rice grains. Inside each cocoon can be between 1 – 20 embryos and the gestation is between 2 – 11 weeks. If soil conditions are not right the cocoons sense this and go into a stage of dormancy until the conditions are right for the hatching.
