Earthworms are Nature's tillers

Natural fertilizers, compost and organic materials encourage native earthworms. Earthworms are Nature's tillers and soil conditioners, and manufacture great fertilizer.

Here in Florida gardens don't get blankets of snow and ice, there's no winter break for the earthworms. Add leaves (shredded or not) to your flowerbeds, the earthworms will love you for it!

I tried worm farming a while back, but gave it up. It just wasn't the thing for me. I rather 'feed' the earthworms throughout the yard by distributing compost soil, horse manure, alfalfa pellets, and of course shredded leaves from our Crepe Myrtles. Earthworms also love used coffee grounds :-)
