More surprises awaited me this morning in the garden. My friend Fuligo has come back, and seems to have made nice with the turnips. We'll see how nice this slime mold really is. What I found to be interesting, was that Fuligo seemed to bring some friends along to this garden party.
I have no idea what these little red blobs are. Let's hope they're as harmless as the slime mold. My garden is starting to be like a herpes victim, suffering these unsightly, oozing outbreaks. I told it to use protection, but they never listen.
In addition to the little, red love bumps, there were some tall, nearly translucent mushrooms growing proudly out of the same spot where Fuligo showed up. Why are the conditions so ripe for these guys to suddenly throw their little frat party in my greens bed?
Radishes are having mixed results. Some are still sprouts, while it's clear that others are making tasty roots. I have more radishes to plant, as well.
Also, I never started my lettuce inside, so I'll be directly sowing those seeds in the fallow half of the Southern plot this week. I have like five or six varieties of lettuce to plant. I'll be poking around on the interwebs looking for some names of these shrooms and fungi.
