    I separate the worms from the soil.  Use the soil and then put the worms back in the worm bucket.

    Worms reproduce fairly rapidly and are hermaphroditic, individuals possess both sexes.  The lighter band behind the head is the clitellum and that's where the sexy sex happens.  Eventually eggs come out and the worm pushes them into the soil away from its head.  Each egg sack has about a hundred worms, if I remember rightly.

    You can locate red worms underneath a big leaf pile or in a compost pile or buy them from a reputable dealer or a bait shop.  Get red wigglers or red wrigglers and tell the people what you're going to use them for.

    A couple hundred are enough to start a worm bucket.

    Lots of information in the library and online.  Some referenced in these comments.  Google "vermiculture."

    Solar is civil defense. Video of my small scale solar experiments at solarray.
