How do I know if my worm compost is ready?

It can be tough to know when your worm casts (or as it's sometimes known, Black Gold) is ready to 'harvest'. 

Here are a few tell-tale signs; The majority of your compost has a deep, rich color - it will also have the same texture throughout. Usually your worms will have moved out of this tray to a tray with fresher waste, this can also mean that you will see less eggs in the finished compost. There may also be a almost fluffy black top layer to the tray.
