Usually we just think of spearing a worm on a hook and offering it to a hungry fish so we can eat the fish. But why not just cut out the middle man? The middle fish?

Worms are actually pretty nutritious with an impressive amino acid profile (assuming you are impressed by these things). Protein-wise they are about equivalent to chicken eggs. A worm omelette would be hearty breakfast.

Worms are also voracious eaters and will quickly wolf down your compost leaving behind tidy and fertile “castings” (an elegant term for worm poop) that plants love.

So get some worms but don’t feed them all to the fishes, Save some for making garden fertilizer and for your next brunch with friends.
