Wonderful! Remember that those tiny white worms might not be baby worms--baby worms look just like their parents, pinkish-red, translucent, segmented. The white worms are probably full-grown pot worms--these are a sort of cousin to the earthworm and they work alongside them, doing more or less the same thing. No reason to discourage their presence. They show up in worm bins all the time.

Enjoy the worms, and let us see a picture of them sometime!

Thanks, Amy! The more the merrier in this li'l ecosystem (except that I'm in no rush for fruit flies). I have seen a couple of worm cocoons lately, so I'll be keeping an eye out for the real thing (and start knitting those earthworm booties).
