A question for Bugdoctor or anyone who can help

I have had issues with my asparagus. I dug around the soil and found "worms". I don't think they are wireworms, but I can't figure out what they are.

The first picture is of what looks like pupa to me.

I'm not able to zoom in to the photos. Sent you a PM to maybe see them better through direct email.
Thanks

Bugdoctor, thanks for the help!

They are apparently millipedes. I've never seen so many before but I guess it's just because of all the rain we've had. At least I feel more comfortable replanting my asparagus bed now. I've never seen these use any of there "pedes", but they did look like a long, skinny version of a pill bug.

Apparently the pupae in the photo are not related to the presence of the millipedes.
