yarb commented on the word fungus garden
The smallest workers, however, rarely leave the nest, and never cut leaves, which, indeed, they are physically incapable of doing. Instead they devote themselves assiduously to a constant weeding of the fungus gardens.- Caryl P. Haskins, Of Ants and Men, 1939, p. 40
