I was out after dark turning the soil in my raised bed and I saw these little dots that glow in the dark. Seriously! I don't drink and I don't believe that my property has ever been a toxic waste dump. I took a handfull inside and the only thing that I could find was baby earthworms. Can they glow in the dark?
