Wood ash/Epsom and worms
Will adding wood ash and/or Epsom salts to my compost pile/pit have a good or bad effect on my worm population?
My finished compost tends to be quite acidic, resulting from lots and lots of leaves and pine needles. I need to sweeten it up a bit, and wood ash and Epsom were suggestions.
However, I have a very fine large worm colony in my pile/pit, and I would not want to do anything deleterious to these special helpers.
