After reading about Brian's experience, I thought I would give it a try. Well, it's been about three weeks now and I don't see any changes happening. All the original worms are still present and they seem to be doing well. I am not saying that the experiment is a failure, just that my timeline is different. If you try this method, keep a log book and let us know how your trials progress.

Hmmm…I must  have done something wrong. Every worm I put into this experiment is still present, they have not been decimated by a "hostile" environment. In fact, I would say they look down right happy. There seems to be a vast difference in the worms Brian used (Lumbricus rubellus) and mine (E. foetida). So, even though the results are dramatically different, I have to agree with Brian that worms are very adaptable, and that the notion that composting worms can't live in soil is, in my case, misleading.  Still, before any conclusions are drawn, I will wait another 60 days and see what unfolds.
