Worms: Cute or Slimy You Choose!

Halloween worms! I remember, as a child, going outside after a rain fall and seeing all those worms out on the pavement. I am not sure how they managed to wiggle their way there but they were all over the place.

I was afraid of these slimy creatures but at the same time fascinated. I would see the dried up bodies of worms who did not make it make back to the moist soil before the sunshine burst through the clouds again.

I don't see those worms much anymore. Are there less of them? Or, do I just not notice anymore? I do know that at Halloween worms can be a wonderful addition!

You can make them, bake them, decorate with them and even wear them They give your Halloween celebration the "yuck" factor. But they can also be cute too so try dressing up your little one as a cute and colorful worm, or add a smiley worm to your decor.

The benefit of real worms is how much they contribute to the health of our soil and our plants. They are more than just a slimy creature they are very beneficial to our environment. So you can see from the list below that worms have a key role in keeping the vegetation healthy and this benefits all of us!

  1. Worms consume organic matter and convert it to food for plants.
  2. The worm "poo" is rich in minerals that are needed by plants.
  3. Worms keep the soil loose which makes it much easier for roots of plants to grow.
  4. Worms help soils to maintain moisture and also keep the soil properly drained.
  5. Worms help plants to absorb needed minerals by bringing them closer to the surface so where the plant roots can reach them.
