Earthworm’s pantry

Earthworm looking for a nice bit of leaf

I like seeing the earthworms in the ground; it tells me that the soil is good and nutritious for nightcrawlers. It’s getting cold and wet (very wet, today) but lots of leaves are covering the ground. the organisms that break down the leaves are  good eats if you’re a worm. So it’s stocking up for the winter, and getting ready to dig deep, deep, deep.
