Worms Don't Have Eyes Or Ears

From this site, WORMCHARMING.COM. "Instead they have light sensitive cells on the surface of their bodies to tell them the difference between light and dark. Worms do not like light, and tend to stay underground during the day,coming out at night to look for food. They are also sensitive to pressure change and vibrations allowing them to adapt quickly when they feel the tapping of raindrops on the ground. When worms detect rain they will rise to the surface to prevent themselves from drowning.
Interestingly, there are world-wide worm charming competitions and champions use this trait to charm the worms out by tapping astick on the floor to recreate the effects of rain drops' vibrations. So next time you see a random person hitting a stickon the ground numerous times, don’t be too alarmed!"

Homemade Drip Irrigation System

YOUGROWGIRL has this great information on building a homemade drip irrigation system. From this site, "One of the best ways to provide a steady water supply to your plants without your constant attention is the gradual watering system or drip irrigation. Through this method a device is employed that slowly delivers water into the soil directly around the roots. Commercial watering spikes can be purchased from you local garden centre however, using recycled materials you can make your own drip irrigation system for free. "Click here for instructions.---
