Funny fungi.


An amazing pillow of fungus. I don’t know what it is.

It looked so delicate growing from the straw mulch that I had to touch it. The last pic shows some on my finger. It is slimy when touched and squishes easily.

I was tempted to taste it. A tiny dab on my tongue let me know it had no taste and I’m still alive after an hour.

So much amazing life is coming from this bag of chopped pea straw. I shall have to buy more!

Free mushrooms!

I’m not sure what they are, but it shows that mychorrizae are growing, and that just may be the most important thing in the world.
