Worms get knotted

No time to visit the plot today but I found something interesting on t'internet. On occasion we've found worms tied in knots in the ground - not just one knot but completely knotted balls. It turns out that they do this to conserve water during particularly dry spells (so no wonder we were finding them this Spring). They also do it during very cold weather.
Well, I thought it was interesting! I'll try to get a photo when we next spot one - if it stops raining again!
