Tammy, just joshing you about feeding so many live worms – they really are fairly expensive if you give them all they will eat. But then again, what is expensive to me is probably not to some.

Carolyn, Cher (our forum Administrator) has a great peanut butter suet recipe which I have used for 8 years now: 1 cup lard & 1 cup crunchy peanut butter, melted in microwave together, add 1/3 sup sugar, 2 cups plain oatmeal, 2 cups cornmeal & 1 cup whole wheat flour. Mix up together and let cool, then crumble up in pea sizes or smaller. My blues (& others) love it. I do keep it in refrigerator so it will not melt all over. I need to make another batch tomorrow and then will be feeding worms about mid-March.
