Worms glorious worms

Back in the autumn I covered some ground with cardboard to stop weeds in one patch of the garden. Today I went there to remove the grotty mess. Underneath there were lots of fat earth worms so I covered it again. Now what shall I do? If I uncover them will they be cold? They seemed to be sluggish and not find their way in the soil. Or too fat! Do they eat cardboard then? 🤔
Worms aren't affected by cold - heat is far worse for them. That's why they'll bury themselves a bit deeper in hotter/drier conditions - same as slugs
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
we collect newspapers from someone else to add in that manner.
The worms you need are the thin red ones, they miraculously arrive on their own but you can buy them. They multiply very quickly.
Then I thought of the worms ... part and parcel and all that.
