Hooray for…Nematodes!

I’ve long loved the worms in my compost heap.  Chuck in a load of vegetable scraps and get lots of excellent stuff for the garden – thanks to the worms.

You can even sic the really little ones (the eponymous nematodes) on slugs and snails.

But now, just to confirm how truly great worms are, they have blasted into space!  Not only that, but they were the only survivors of the 2003 Columbia Space Shuttle disaster, found intact and alive in their special container.

So here’s to them.  To the Wormery and Beyond!
