I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

Copulation in the Compost.

I was turning the compost today and it is coming along very nicely.  It will be lovely to use with the spring vegetable plantings.  The compost is full of worms, some of them very big. 

I also found these two..... in a passionate embrace.  Worms are hermaphrodites and their reproduction is very interesting.  If you want to know more click here

All I know is that this means more worms and great compost!

  1. Hi Hazel, I have quite a thing for keeping worms, so was quite thrilled when I saw this shot of yours... albeit an invasion of their privacy

    I feel I must add it to my 'over the fence' - I shall mark it "R" for restricted viewing of course. Cheers :D)
