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.

Earthen Wurmin’s Worm Facts & Quotes
The earthworm’s digestive system comprises the mouth, pharynx, crop, gizzard, intestine and anus. Worms do not have teeth. Food is, therefore, softened and broken down by microorganisms. In simple terms, the worm’s digestive system is a tube from the mouth to the anus. It eats with one end and shits with the other.

The worm eats hard particles like tiny stones to further break down the food and allow the moistened food to travel through the gizzard. In addition to this process, intestinal gland cells release digestive fluids and, combined with the muscles in the digestive system, allow for the food to continue to the anus.
