I'm not worried about the vegies - I ate some cucumbers with little tiny worms in them and have been sick - diareah, stomach pain - what can I do?

The little worms are probably fruit worms and you can control them with Dipel or Thuricide. Eating the worms along with the cucumber usually won't cause any ill effects - they are a small source of protein - but just the idea of eating them is enough to make anyone sick! Hope you feel better soon!
