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!

1The InformationSuperHighway tells me they do.
