How does my compost look?

Post  newstart on 1/5/2012, 3:18 pm

Does my compost results look ok. I couldnt help but take a look at the bottom I have been slightly turning and always adding stuff to my two piles. Also I Cool found 10 big bags of leaves that I added to my piles and other flower bed as mulch. also are the worms earthworms or wrigglers? or even something else. I hope they are good i moved about 25 to some of my potted flowers.

under the pile



under the pile



one of my two piles. I know it may not look very tall but whe I started it I dug down quick a bit so it wouldnt blow away. I am going to put some kind of fencing around it soon .



are these earthworms wrigglers or what. Found them at the bottom of my piles

They might be earthworms. Red Wigglers are smaller and reddish.

Your piles are lookin' good.
