Earth worms are not only the most recognizable of all the animals in the soil food web, but also one of the most important to gardening and farming. Among other benefits, earthworms aerate the soil; there is absolutely no need to till with a healthy population of worms. I’ve read a few books about worms and many other very interesting facts…
Spent a really satisfying morning emptying my two compost bins. 🙂 Spread the compost around the beds and was pleased about how many worms there were (though not sure that they will survive the badgers’ foraging tonight). It always amazes me how such sweet-smelling and friable compost can be produced from kitchen scraps, weeds, grass cuttings, shreddings etc.
One question: am I right not to put orange and lemons into the compost bin and, if so, then why not? 🙁
