I have seen the future: Potato Polo mints.
We( me) lifted the last of the spudatoes from the polytunnel yesterday. Not a bad crop and wifey noticed one of them had an hole in it. On closer inspection we discovered the culprit had scoffed the inside of the potato.
Now I am the kind of fellow that would share my cigs or even my beer but not my potatoes to a wire worm.
Hope they are wireworm? Metal or iron worm would eat the polytunnel tubing wouldn't they?
Apparently they drill the holes and the slugs take over. I have found no sign of the wireworm and they usually live in old pasture or grassland. My veg plot was once a pasture and we have grassy areas in the veg plot. An organic way of controlling wireworm is to sow mustard because wireworm don't like it.
That's gardening. One welly boot forwards and one welly boot backwards!
