Drought's over!

JG's Antje gave birth last night around 10pm to 9 little pink wigglers. I had them out today to give the smallest ones some quality time with mom and dinner. Perhaps because of the heat, she didn't pull any wool with them. So I shaved her belly with my new German Red Clippers (awesome tool, well worth the price). As I did so, I noticed she was still bleeding a bit, although she'd cleaned herself up very well. Then after I put her away, I noticed later when I brought her some fresh parsley and a half a carrot, that she is now pulling wool. A little late for that, I thought, then it occurred to me, I'll bet she still has a baby or two inside her. We'll see what happens. Proud Papa is Samson's Oscar.
