Feed the Fishworms and They Will Feed You. Written for the United States School Garden Army You don't find manv fishworms in a sand bank. There is nothing there for them to eat. Nor will you find many in a light, sandy soil. There is not much most any summer morning by looking in the garden. This experiment shows what is hap pening all summer in every garden more to eat there than in the sand bank, j where leaves and fishworms are-pres ent. And it is not leaves alone that the fishworms eat. All kinds of plant ma terials soft enough for them to get hold of are devoured and the particles passed through their bodies to be cast out as If you will put a thick layer of leaves on sandy soil and place a few fish worms on the leaves something is like ly to happen. The worms will make their way through the leaves to the top I Curran & Phipps Plumbers S23 Tinners Cooking, Heating and Gas Stoves On Hand CARSON STREET Next to Capital Garage PHONE 436 WOOD AND COAL Orders for wood and coal now received- Prompt delivery.

In this way the the leaves and draw them down into the j earthworms have been very helpful in holts in the soil that the earthworms I increasing the depth of soils. For while are always making. The small bits of ; one worm alone may not do much in leaves along with the small bits of soil : one year, a million worms in a hundred pass through the liodies of the worms! j ears will accomplish a great deal, and arc finally cast out as little pellets I You will readily see that this grind on the surface beside the holes.

The soil is full j of minute germs called bacteria, which ! are always at work producing food for plant growth. These bacteria can work much better in this finely ground leafy material than in course leaves. So the worms are of great assistance in mak ing the soil richer in chemicals for plant growth. Even the holes that the worms make j in the soil are helpful. They permit air j j to pentrate and rain to run in, thus i furnishing two of the most necessary I things to keep the soil in action. On I this account alone it is desirable to have earthworms in the garden. Humus is called food producer. When j you feed fallen leaves to the fishworms they become producers- of humus and enrich the soil by so doing. They help ! to make the soil better, but they must j I have plant materials to do it with. In general the richer your garden the more earthworms there will be. And the more earthworms the more' humus and the more humus the more food, and food is what every soldier of the School Gar den Army is after. So, it all comes down to this: If you feed the fishworms the fishworms will feed vou.
