Turning Beds, Finding Worms

Went out and turned the beds to keep the composting going. I turned some grass and leaves into the beds last fall and have turned them every chance I got, even through the winter. When I turned them this time I found what I wanted to find:

So many worms, I actually even turned over a ball of worms about the size of a baseball. Exactly what I was looking for!


  1. I love finding worms when I work in the garden, it's a great sign that you have healthy soil. When we first bought our house and started gardening I didn't even spot a worm for 4-5 years until we'd fully transitioned to organic. Now we have worms everywhere and it makes me smile to see them! Hurray for worms!

  2. Don't you just love when that happens?! We've been doing this same thing for a few years now and my kids have decided that we have some how "stolen" all the worms from our entire neighborhood there are so many.
    Looks like it will be a good garden bed for this year.
