Assuming that you're using unleaded fuel, plug color means from very little to nothing as to your jetting.  Besides that, the only way to use plug color to evaluate your A/F ratio with leaded fuel is a full throttle run on a used plug with the engine shut down immediately at the end of it.

 

Plug color is an accurate gauge of plug temperature (yours looks good), and can help to spot problems such as poor ignition quality, incorrect ignition timing, and detonation.  But not jetting.
