the way nature intended

Oh come on,...it's just a worm ;)
Normally the farm cuts the tops off the corn for us, so we don't have to 'deal' with them.
They purposely told us they didn't do that this week and we were warned there would be worms.
I used the opportunity to show my 4 yr old that worms are important, they make our dirt (ok, maybe not this worm, but whatever) and that it's ok if they are in our food now and then.  
True, no?

Good lesson, but I still don't like to see them.

We had one in the salad greens! I let him squirm on the counter, and then he went to live in the Bug Barn.
