Cute Couple Catching Critters for Cash

Okay. You’ll have to bear with me until I get this out of my system.

The couple that plays together stays together

    Hmmm…If I go out and start pounding on my metal fence posts and grunting real loud, do you suppose I could bring up some of those night crawlers from my back yard? Or maybe the neighbors would try to get me committed.

    Cute video, cute couple.

    Cheryl – I saw that video a while back, and was just amazed.

    Granny-I don’t know. You might become the best friend of your fishing neighbors. Night crawlers are almost $3.00 a dozen around here.

    EG-This was my first time seeing this one. There’s lots of unusual things in nature.

    Oh wow! That’s the kind of worms we have around here. They are earthworms. They are different than nightcrawlers though. I’ve seen the nightcrawlers at my MIL’s in Kentucky.

    Somehow I have one of my raised beds that is full of earthworms. I don’t know how because the bottom of the bed is landscape fabric.

    Maybe I need to try to do this and call up a bunch of worms to put in my other beds LOL

    I always thought earth worms and night crawlers were the same worm, but I’d rarely see ANY worms in the garden last year, not even when I dug around trying to find fishing bait. Wish I knew your secret. My beds don’t have landscape fabric and I experimented with leaving food scraps in a little section and covering it with a heavy fabric. The food scraps would disappear, but no worms…and I don’t think the squirrels were smart enough to move the cloth, dig and find the scraps and then put the cover back. 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment.

    Night crawlers are HUGE. Well, not like that giant in the video, but pretty darned big. The definitely keep our lawn aerated, and leave little bumpy mounds all over…that’s a good thing, but feels odd under bare feet. We seldom see them. Sometimes a few will surface after a particularly hard rain, but usually one has to go out with a flashlight at night to spot them, then be really fast to grab. They are terribly strong. If they start to return underground, it’s nearly impossible to pull them back without ripping them in half.

    I’m picturing the look on the bankers face when you put “Worm Grunter” as your occupation on a mortgage app.

    You gotta admit though – that occupation does have a low environmental impact.

    Granny-My yard worms must be shy. I wouldn’t see them after a hard rain or when I went out in the evening with the red celephone over the flashlight searching for them. (My neighbors probably had some raised eyebrows about that one) I even tried mixing mustard with water and pouring it on the ground which is supposed to irritate their skin and make them come up. Still didn’t see them.

    David-LOL. Hey, everybody’s gotta do something. Low environmental impact, low overhead, self-sustaining stock. Sounds all right to me.
