Last year, a spinner in my neck of the woods (Oklahoma) had more silkworms than she could feed and was looking for homes for them. I said that I would take 50, but when I got home I found I had 150—just a smidgen more than I had bargained for. Sometimes you get more than you ask for. I should have learned. This year I wanted 50 silk worms again, and a friend brought me some of her silkworm eggs. I didn’t count —big mistake!
