Coffee Grounds in the garden

Mega Worm!!!

Imagine my surprise, digging through the garden, when suddenly the beast of Bentleigh emerges from the soft earth.

It is easily the biggest worm I have held, and in the photo below you can see the beast along with a typical compost worm. No maybe not as impressive as the Giant Gippsland Earthworm, which includes at no additional charge the comforting voice of David Attenborough.

So what attracted the beast to my humble plot? It must have been all the coffee grounds that I’ve been sprinkling around the place, it’s like a magnet I tells you, like a magnet!

Now as for the rest of the story, that is for another time. But if you hear a dulled and mighty roar from a place far and deep away, think kindly of the beast, who is working hard to help bring life to our soil.

Update to the Story of Mega Worm

It seems that Mega Worm was not alone, because I also came across a large Worm feeding on coffee grounds and various other amazing natural materials. Earthworms in the garden are a sign of soil health, and this in turn will give you healthy productive plants.

I suspect there are many more mega worms in the backyard, and I with them long and productive lives in my garden.

    • Thanks Jane, I too welcome them. There is a great quote from Charles Darwin that goes “…it may be doubted if there are any other animals which have played such an important part in the history of the world as these lowly organized creatures.” Cute little earthworms :)
