Yesterday, I was finally able to plant my potatoes. I know I am late as usual, but last year I started maybe 1 week earlier and was blessed with tons of potatoes, so I think I'll be okay. Anyway, while I was digging a hole, I found an old potato that I must have missed last year, and when I pulled it up, there were like a million teeny tiny white wormy looking things all over the old rotting potato. They were maybe 1/8 in long and as slim as a needle. There were tons of them crawling around centered on this potato. What are they? I was so grossed out that I took the whole shovel load and dumped it in the garbage. Then dug around and tried to find as many as I could and threw them out as well. I'm sure there were more though. I didn't know what to do so I planted my potato anyway. I continued to dig another 35 holes and did not find this again. Will these things hurt my new seed potato? Do you think they will hurt my whole crop?
