This is what you will all call a slow heap! Compost beautiful and finished in the bin but colonised by ants, a hive I think would be a good word. I have a look at them whenever on the allotment, and marvel at the industry and the countless tiny grains of soil each processed and individually placed, the eggs and air vents. I see some out on the plot but I don't think they do any harm. I can't bear to destroy them and have plenty of compost nearby. Don't think there will be many to agree with me!
