You might remember the 60 litre bin we bought in March to store some of the soil in over winter as a sort of faux composty container.
I’d periodically thrown some organic matter in there and given it the occasional stir, but had not looked inside in over a month.
Imagine my surprise on Monday when I went out to water the plants and throw in some manky lettuce and discovered, stuff:
some sort of plant thing!
Given that this balcony is off the second floor, I have no idea how worms came to be! Perhaps there were worm eggs in the soil? Do worms even lay eggs?1
This is very exciting, I really need to start planning the planting for spring/summer!
