That looks like eelworm damage to me.  Often a problem on newly cultivated land.  Some potato varieties (particularly the earlier ones) are more resistant. 

Slug..... Or is it ?

But Neet is an experienced gardener of 40 years and he says he's never seen anything like it, and he says it doesn't have the texture of a slug

Never seen anything like that before - and I have seen a lot of things! 

Whereabouts are you Neet?

Here in Norfolk we're very keen on keeping an eye on slugs - I suggest you should contact the Slugwatch team at the John Innes Centre - contact link at the bottom right of this

and do keep us informed - I'm intrigued

Hostafan   That's brilliant news - now for that physio!!!  I had physio then had to go to the 'knee gym' where several people with 'knees' did various activities designed to strengthen muscles, improve balance etc.  I remember lots of stair-climbing and wobble-board stuff   Hope your lovely OH is going to get a lie-in over the weekend

Hope everyone else with aches, strains and pains have got their feet up and are well enough for a weekend playing outside

Does anyone know when...

Or.. you could watch it on the iPlayer.    Fabulous thing that.

I always record it anyway, but I like to watch it between 8 and 9 on a Friday - I'm a creature of habit

Hi Neet

Any photographs?  What colour are these creatures?

toad spawn

Fantastic!    We've seen young toads in this garden but no adults so are not expecting spawn this year - we have got frogs in the garden but before we made our pond last year they spawned in next door's pond, so I don't know whether they'll use our pond this year - I live in hope

vermiculite or perlite
