this might seem a silly question(hopefully it's in the right setion)but if i don't ask i won't know.
i'm finally getting round to using my homemade compost in the veg patch what i was wondering is"will the worms in the compost eat my veggies as they grow?"just wondered as that is what they have been eating in the compot bin.

No, worms won't eat your veggies ! Don't worry. If you have worms in your compost and soil be grateful, they are an essential part of healthy soil. And I'm sure someone on the forum could explain why much better than I could ! Treasure each and every one !
