Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

Pengyou, I called http://taiwan-earthworm.com/shop/ about 6 weeks ago but they aren't delivering for four months because they need to replenish their worm supply. In any case, they'll deliver once they have worms available.

Finley, where can I get 25L bags of compost for NT$80?

Pretty much anywhere in Toufen, where my land is. All home DIY shops seem to have it for about that price. In Taipei ... yeah, probably a bit more expensive. Anyway, avoid B&Q!

While on a holiday with my family in the U.S., I was attracted to a road sign that pointed the way to "WORM FARM". I couldn't resist and made the detour. My mind was rampant with worms growing like asparagus. What I found was a worm factory. Numerous refrigerators buried so only the door opened. The guide showed us that they had a "starter set of worms. Some soil but also vegy waste tossed in on top of the soil. When the vegy material was lifted we could see millions of worms entangled. Weird site and I guess it impacted me in some way because it has been more than 30 years since. Where to find the starter worms? Sorry, I can't answer that but, like rats and rabbits, it wont take many to start the farm. Looks like there might be a market.
"Buffalo Jump" was another excursion taken on my wife's driving duty. Another story. Ever seen buffalo jumping?

Seems the native Americans had a unique was to capture Bison, Thus "Buffalo Jump" They would choose a place that narrowed to a cliff. The young men would herd the bufflo to the cliff, Therein the buffalo would fall to there death. Womenfolk, as called back then, would butcher the animals and dry the meat in the sun to provide for their families in the winter,
Thus, "Buffalo Jump". Wonders never cease when on a holiday and wife unit is driving.
