Peeling back the plastic cover, umpteen wriggling, squishy creatures object to being disturbed. Centipedes, beetles and spiders scuttle for cover. A tomato wears a beautiful fur coat; a soggy cucumber end with a big fat slug attached to it; a germinating avocado stone. The dark world of the compost bin. A snapshot opportunity of colour and life. In a few months this decaying vegetable matter will be lovely crumbly compost for the garden.
