Growing Fishing Worms

If you'd like to raise fishing worms, but have been stymied by the lack of compost, cornmeal, vegetable matter, or manure to feed the little critters, try this:


Fill the worm box with pieces of corrugated cardboard, wet the chunks of scrap down good, let them stand for a couple of days, then put the worms in on top. The worms will burrow right down into the moist corrugations and live on the glue that's on the material. Keep an inch of damp peat moss on top of the cardboard to hold the moisture in and the worms in the box will thrive as long as there's any glue left to eat.
