plants in the ground

it happened. i cleared a space in the weeds, i dug in the earth, i saw the earthworms and i put plants in the ground. i watered them and put their little white plastic spikes next to them.

the soil in my raised bed is pretty good, if a little compacted. i dug wide holes and crumbled up the earth so the new plants will have a little breathing room. and i made sure the earthworms were put back around them.

they are so tiny and that bed is so big and weedy.

What kind of earthworms did you find? The big gooey kind? The little pink wiry kind? Chop any of them?

Worms make me think of childhood, much of which was fun. (The play-outside parts, anyway.)

"big gooey" earthworms?

do you mean... slugs?

i found the... uh, the earthworm kind. i think there's only one :)

actually I heard an NPR show about worms and there are lots of different kinds. but I don't think it makes much difference to the garden, they're all good for the soil.

what I want to know is, what did you plant?
