What about the worms?
We decided a walk in the woods and shoreline fishing at a lake nearby, was in order yesterday. Don't worry we made sure we were social distancing the whole time. Thank God for now they are letting us in the parks. No, we didn't catch anything and yes, we froze to death near the shore.
We did run into a problem with our plan, where to get worms? Now we have dug for worms in the garden before but that's after it's been plowed and it's a bit warmer. The worms we found were very small and hard to find. That seemed to be right up youngest grand child's alley though. She loved it.
We came back home and decided to move our patio furniture around and boom right under the potting bag there were 10 big worms. Not wanting to let them go to waste I put them in a old cool whip container and decided to start a worm bin. Of course I didn't know how, so I went to you tube. My favorite go to is MI gardener and he showed me how. There are many tutorials on there so, you can pick you favorite if you want to do this too.
The worm bin is in the garage in a dark place by the freezer. I had a nightmare last night that they all escaped and were now in the freezer. To tell the truth, I'm a little afraid to go and find out this morning. Maybe I should move them.
Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know how things are going in your neck of the woods.

Worm hunting and fishing sounds like just the ticket to end boredom! What fun.
PS - hope there are no worms in the freezer! LOL
They did have a great time. I moved the works haha! Have a great day Cheryl
Sounds like a fun day. Glad they enjoyed the worm hunt. :)
They really had a good,day.
Working are a lot of fun.
Worm hunts...spell check and me are not getting along today!
I had to laugh about your worm encounter. I've been thinking about doing a snail habitat for my grandson. I have a friend who has one. We've been seeing lots of worms here with spring clean up.
The post brings back precious memories of my Daddy taking me fishing. We would always dig for worms in the backyard and then, just in case, we stopped by the tackle and bait shop to get extra. :-)
I checked the worms the morning when I moved them and they were doing good. I can't show the youngest she thinks they are all good friends. Oldest one will be interested though when she is not around. I think your grandson would love it. Good thing to do
Melissa what a precious memory of your Daddy. That's the part we missed..no tackle shop to help us. All closed down. I hope my worm bins in case we get a chance to go again.
Vickie that is a good way to to keep the grandchildren occupied and glad you can still go to the parks there for some exercise and some fishing too :).
Glad you moved the worms :) but they would have happily wriggled around in the soil rather than the freezer.
Have a great week ahead.
Isn't it funny how your imagination can run wild thinking about things (worms). I just had to move those worms! Thing is they might have to go back there when it gets warmer that's a cool spot.
Have a great week too Lorna!
