Now, you are possibly wondering what the following photo is all about?
It’s soil, I hear you reply!
And yes it is but, even though the shot doesn’t show it very well, it looks like a pile of worm casts. I’ve been aware of the strange phenomenon for a few days now and it seems to have grown since I first noticed it.
What puzzles me is that, if it is worm casts, it is a much bigger mound of them than I’ve ever seen before. Could there be a worm as big as a snake living under there? Or perhaps what I’m looking at is something altogether different.
Anyway, whatever it going on is hopefully good for the soil. And if you are interested, here is what the RHS has to say about worm casts: RHS on worm casts.
