By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     "You're growing what?" Josh asked incredulously.
 
2     "Worms," said Carl. A smile crept into the corner of his mouth. "You know, the little wrigglers you put on a hook to catch fish?"
 
3     "Yuck," said Josh, wrinkling his nose. "I don't know how you can stand to be around them, much less handle them. They're so slimy, and they're nasty looking, too."

6     "Do you like to eat?" asked Carl.
 
7     "What kind of question is that?" Josh was perplexed. Was Carl trying to change the subject or just confuse him? He certainly wouldn't want to eat worms!
 
8     "Worms are great soil builders," said Carl. "You cannot grow food well if there aren't enough worms in the ground."
 
9     "You still haven't answered my question," said Josh. "How can worms affect plants?"
