Can anyone recommend a good source for 1,000 (1 lb) red worms for composting (not mixed with other worms, and good health and honest numbers)?
NW Redworms has freezing problems now and I wonder in Uncle Jim's provides the numbers promised.
We are in WV, and alas, it is January.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

I purchased from Uncle Jim's last year. The worms were very healthy and active because they were packaged very carefully. I didn't count mine, but it looked like there may have been many more than the 1000 that I ordered. I'm not sure if they ship in winter, but it's worth finding out. I think you'd be pleased with your order. I put mine in raised greenhouse beds, and any time I dig around I find them all still healthy and happy.
