Erin from The Impatient Gardener joins Eric to tell of this new invasive worm, Amynthas agrestis, that is turning soil into cat litter. Or at least something that looks like cat litter. Read Erin's post here: http://www.theimpatientgardener.com/2017/09/the-invasive-species-that-has-me.html

According to the Wisconsin Dept of Natural Resources: Jumping worms remove a protective layer from the soil surface. This changes how the soil looks and feels. Where there are jumping worms, the soil becomes grainy and can look like coffee grounds. More info here: http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/Invasives/fact/jumpingworm/index.html
