You may remember that Terry brought bought part of her Sansevieria (Snake Plant) collection to show us. I happen to have on of these plants myself. It has been with me for 20 years or more. It tried to put my eye out once, but that is another story.
My plants are loving the rain and heat these early summer days, and I don’t mind not having to water every day, BUT it might be a little too much when my front lawn suddenly sprouts a thousand little white mushrooms!
There is Always Some Damn Thing…
I happen to have both juniper and crabapple trees in my yard that usually look quite beautiful. The crabapples were especially pretty this year. Not especially pretty were the orange “mushrooms” infesting my juniper. Upon investigation I discovered that cedar/junipers and apple/crabapple trees can be an unfortunate combination. Wikipedia offered some enlightening information. And yes – I did notice spots on my crabapple leaves last year.
Last fall Dr. Tomato, a.k.a. David O’Connor, came to give us a talk about dirt. That’s right, DIRT! He spoke of the importance of having healthy, rich soil to grow flowers and vegetables in. He came dressed for the part, wearing bright red scrubs. During the talk, he mentioned the castle that he built himself and invited us to come for a visit.
Max here! I have a giant orange mushroom in my yard. It appears in early fall.
Anyone know what it is? Can I eat it?
