Remember that computer game where little worms attempt to blow each other up? (Worms) There was one move which was deadly but effective. You could kamikaze, killing all opposition worms in your path… just before you blow up.

My worms have been taking lessons from Team 17. I woke up this morning to find worm carnage all over my patio at the worms from my new wormery decided to look for pastures new. My tiles are however a little impenetrable and the morning sun proved sadly fatal for most.

So the challenge is now to figure out what goes on inside the black box that the worms don’t like. A bit of lime (to bring down the acidity) and a load of earth (to make them feel at home) haven’t worked so far. I will be trying further tactics and letting you know how the worm suicides abate.
