    Hey Bentley,
    I was wondering if you were going to do a “Spring Sale” on worms and maybe worm related stuff, cause I could use another pound or two in the Spring.
    I was also wondering if I could buy 2 pounds of worms but have them in two different bags, that you/your suppliers ship, so I don’t have to go through the hassle of splitting them between bins and paying an extra $20. (learned that buying two 1 pound bags of worms is pretty much the same price as 3 pounds of worm) If it can’t happen because of shipping cost or something, then it’s okay I’m fine with trying to split them myself.
    Thanks for your time!

    DocDoc – thanks very much for your support!

    Nomar – I haven’t planned anything but I might be nudged in that direction (wink wink). My supplier has been known to split worm orders for customers from time to time.

    Hi Bentley & fellow vermicomposters!
    I am hoping that somebody can help me figure out what kind of critter is inhabiting my indoor compost bin. I have been using a homemade rubbermaid bin since November. The other day I dug deep to mix in food scraps & add fresh bedding to the bottom of my bin. Towards the bottom, I discovered dozens of small milky white worms, maybe 3 millimeters in lengthx2 millimeters wide. I’ve read through my worm books, and searched images online in an attempt to identify these small worms, but no pictures I’ve found have looked anything like what I have in my bin. Does anyone know what this is, and should I be removing them from my bin?
