Heavily earthworm-infested soil

There's no "Before" shot here so you are just going to have to imagine that this patch of earth in Minnesota was once covered by a thick layer of leaf litter. You're not supposed to be able to see the exposed soil, it means that non-native earthworms have passed through and done a right job on the place.

Thanks Jennifer for posting this. Its a huge problem, relatively unknown, with no easy solutions. Awareness is a good first step.
