True Living Organics Clod
Found this great example while clod gathering and digging out the bins. It shows dramatic stratified layers of the different soil microbes. This all played out in an old "heat compost" bin that I let go cold because it got worms in it. This material has a diverse group of living soil organisms which occupy various niches in the soil ecosystem. Symbiotic relationships take place where one thing uses the byproducts of another as well as competition to eat up the nutrients. All of this makes for a rich. vibrant living mass which is "candy for plants" and holds or sequesters substances which would normally run off or evaporate into the air.
