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.

Earthen Wurmin’s Worm Facts & Quotes
In the right conditions earthworms can eat their full weight in scraps a day whilst in not so ideal environmental conditions they are happy with half of that consumption rate. The best ratio is to feed only half of the overall weight of your worm occupants.

  1. 🙂 I think that one of the reasons why the worm retailers do not post those types of images is because the majority of the people on the planet know what worms look like.

    It is nice to see that you are giving away images of worms under the condition of “Earthly Comforts” being credited as being the original source.

    Do enjoy the rest of your day, Rory.

    1. That’s true Renard, everyone says a worm is a worm is a worm, and yet worm geeks like me love to see worms and more importantly the environment they are living within 🙂

      The biggest problem is that most worm shots are pretty bland and basic and not always defined 🙂

      Thank you, wishing you also a lovely day.

  2. Great pictures, but I noticed they all seem to look the same. I was just thinking, Rory, there are so many in your farm, I wonder how you would really get to know your worms? You know, like a pet – well enough to distinguish the individuals and give them names? (😁 Just kidding.)

        Do they kiss ass lol sorry just kidding – that just made me laugh so I let it ✌️😘

        I can see reason no eyes or nose – totally

        Every time you say wormy 🪱 – I think of that one from Sesame Street ❤️❤️ I loved him

        One time at a school fair when I was 9… there was this big wormy stuffed animal – I asked if I could have and they say no…

        But I had issues sometimes 🙄 and I would get bloody noses really bad… and that happened … and it wouldn’t stop

        So they bought me wormy and bring me to hosp ❤️

        I still have wormy ❤️
