Worms & Links

We manage our compost mid-week and as I turned the pile to aerate this week in the 10” of snow I was excited to see large numbers of red wriggler worms and even more excited to find worm cocoons! I circled two in the picture below. Each cocoon holds 3 or 4 teeny tiny baby worms and takes a few weeks to hatch.
