Red Wigglers

The kids are eating turkey sandwiches and cherries for lunch, so while they are silently intent on pitting their cherries, I am sitting down at the computer for a few notes. Don't be fooled into thinking that red wigglers are available at most bait shops. I can tell you from my experience this morning that they are not. Bloodworms are, but red wigglers (Eisenia fetida) are not, and these worms are specifically recommended for this project because "of their resilience, swift reproduction rates, and healthy appetites," according to the magazine. So I would recommend that you either call ahead to bait shops and "Mom and Pop" stores near you which are likely to carry live bait OR just purchase them online.
