what the heck are these????
It's true... I had hoped I would have a perfectly pest free vegetable garden. But it seems my dream of pest free gardening is not going to happen. Just weeks in and there are thousands, no - millions, of tiny white wormy critters on my carrot and chard plants, surrounding soil, and soaker hose.
I have been googling, and searching throughout all my gardening books and magazines to identify it, but cannot be sure. Might take a sample to Bunnings tomorrow morning. Oh, I am consumed with worried thoughts and imagine myself going for my morning stroll by the beds tomorrow to find they have chomped on all of my seedlings!!!
Have you seen these before in your garden? If so, what did you do to get rid of them, or are they beneficial?
