Worm castings - or worms?

10 years ago

I put in several new raised beds last year. The are deep beds - 18- 32 ". I filled the bottom half with local sandy soil, and then layered up composted manure/peat moss and partly composted vegetable matter from my yard.

I am getting ready to plant this spring, but there doesnt seem to be any life in the soil at this point. I am thinking about buying worms and or worm castings, but I am a bit surprised at the prices.

Any advice on the amount that I should consider? There is a WI worm farm that I am looking at as my source.

Here is a link that might be useful: WI red worms
