Straw Bale Gardening, Day 2

Yesterday when I got ready to water my straw bales, my husband was filling the ditch from our recent plumbing project and kept finding earthworms. I read in one of the articles about straw bale gardening that they would help to break down your bales, so he added the little guys to my straw bales. Being new bales, I wasn't sure if they'd do anything with them or not, so I got the bright idea to add a little soil to the top and then water it down into the straw while I saturated the whole thing. Not sure if that was a good idea or not, but it's done now. Comments?
