This is a bit dated but still fun to read. Let’s hear it for worms! (the worms in my basement composting system are giving the big thumbs up…oops. well it’s not their thumbs.. actually looks like their tails… those clever beings… ;~)
In case you’re in need of a piece of trivia to share today, here’s one that
might interest you …
The ‘Full Worm Moon’ is the moon that occurs in March when the sunlight is
getting stronger and the frozen ground begins to thaw. You can tell the
worms have begun to come awake when you find the little curly mounds of dirt
on the ground. These mounds, or castings are part of nature’s way of
preparing the earth for new growth. Then the flowers and herbs and trees and
green grass suddenly burst out and let us know spring is here.
Unless I’m mistaken, that’s tonight … so step outside into your gardens
and labyrinths this evening and behold the wakening landscape. “Worm
moonlight” is a whole lot prettier than it sounds!
