Settled into its winter home, Gilligan bursts at the seams with 10,000 worms feasting on donated pumpkin.
Gilligan started life as a paddling pool, explains Sandra Birrell. The plastic turtle with lid could have been a sandbox, but they used it as a kiddie pool for the granddaughter.
At three, she was completely willing to alternate her pool use, with a worm farm. By a couple years in, she was too big for the pool and loved the worms anyway so Gilligan became a full time farm.
