Worms make a great Valentine present

“Love stinks! Minnesota farmer creates manure valentine.”

This is the headline from the Toronto Star Feb. 13.

I raise red wiggler worms for worm composting. Worms have five hearts each.

There are 800 to 1,000 worms in a pound. That’s 4,000 to 5,000 hearts in a pound of worms. That’s a lot of love!

A pound of worms is way more loving than a pound of chocolates.

So like a half-mile manure heart, worms, too, can make a memorable Valentine gift.

Thank you for the great story!
