Wireworms or slugs - first is more likely on soil recently used for grass, second more likely if your soil is heavy and wet.
Sow your seeds, plant your plants, and plonk your potatoes in the soil.

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older.
