Tonight's conversation is a slimey one haha Let's Discuss Worms!
Worms are a crucial component in a health living organic soil. Worms are great for naturally tilling the soil, eating and digesting organic materials to make them into plant available food, producing enzymes from there slime to stimulate growth and even more! Oh and don't forget worm castings are a important part of living organic soil indoor or outdoor. So having worms in your soils constantly creating more worm castings and worm cacoons is really beneficial.
Now along with the many other things worms do for your soil health they also can help spread benifical micro organisms and fungi to help with the overall health of your soil life! In addition to having them added to your soils to improve soil tilth. You should also look into vermicompost and using worms to help create some of the most amazing compost for your garden that's very microbially active and nutritionally rich! But that's a whole nother topic. When you are mulching and creating a decomposition layer the worms are your friends they help to speed up the decomposition process because when they eat the organic material enzymes from there slime also help break down the organic matter!
Worms are amazing organic processors and can really benefit your garden, so I'd really recommend taking the time to dig into this a little more yourself I can't cover all the uses and benefits of worms but I can at least point you in the right direction. If nothing else at least look more into vermicompost and work to implement that it is extremely beneficial and I need to get some going myself now that I'm back to growing again. Maybe I'll share on this post later how to set up a cheap vermicompost set up!
Thanks to all of you who read this thread if there is anything I can do to help improve the information in this thread please let me know thanks!
