I wish I had taken a picture of my soil today, but I didn't.
I started cutting holes in weed fabric for garlic, in a small bed where I have grown peppers for the past two years. The bed is surrounded by grassy weeds (:

The soil is clay and when I cut a slit there were dozens of small holes in the soil, no more that an eight of an inch in diameter. Could it be wireworm tracks?
I was going to plant garlic in this bed tomorrow.

After curing I saw wireworm holes on a very small percentage of garlic from my main bed, and this former pepper garden is all that I have ready for fall planting. Some wireworm holes did not go thru to the blub, but some did a bit of damage. No use planting here if I have wireworms in this bed too.
