Stirring the compost heap

One job I did get done was giving the compost heap A Good Stir.  It took a bit of hefting about with a garden fork but I’m pleased I did it.

There are lots of worms in there and, actually, quite a lot of compost.  Most things have rotted down nicely (although not the angelica stalks – perhaps I should pull those out).

Now that things should be getting warmer, I hope that everything will rot down pretty quickly.  I haven’t actually used any of the compost from my compost heap yet so perhaps I should do that this year.
