I am a boy and I love dirt and worms (I love dirt even more now it smells like molasses)
but just after stepping into the shower, I was wondering about these unsung heroes of the garden
when we build a house we take the soil layer away and leave the clay(well in sydney anyway) this clay then bakes the 36-50 weeks till it become like a rock
then we add topsoil and do our best to incorporate it into the clay and if we follow Fu's AWESOME advice we begin to see the microbes get busy and give is some BLACK gold
but what about the worms??
How do they get to what once was rock and do there thing??
Should we be adding worms to the mix after we have done all prep work?
or are there worm eggs in the organic compost just waiting to hatch and get busy??
