Build a better earthworm home with this easy technique to grow earthworms in your garden. 

Perhaps you would like to tell your readers about a plan to build a better earthworm home. A neighbor used this method in her small garden in 1964: Open up the side and bottom of a gunnysack, lay it on the ground and throw your dishwater on the sack for a few days, and you will have worms.

Also, for a budget food, have you heard of comfrey (also called Russian comfrey)? It's wonderful for greens; one leaf will feed a family of five. It sends its roots down eight feet, is good silage for animals and it's a great healer food also. If I recall correctly, one acre of comfrey can be cut to cover 14 acres after two years.
