Does anyone know what this is?
I have seen it in the soil before and tried to remove it but it either snaps or you end up just holding the outside. When you pull on it it unsheathes itself and leaves a strong inner core of root. It is a pretty pink outer layer.
When I was digging the new spot for the compost bin and even digging through the old compost bin I found this stuff. My helpers didn’t try to eat it…
I have found plenty of it but never a plant that it attaches to. It has so many little roots.
Does anyone recognise it? I assume it is a weed but it could be something that I have composted that is trying to grow.
