Monday Morning Container Garden Surprises!
This morning I woke up absurdly early. At least for me it was absurdly early. And by waking up early - I mean - waking UP-UP! Like ready to run a marathon UP. That's totally unlike me, too! Usually I hit the snooze! NOT this morning! So...with waking up so NICELY this morning I declared THIS WEEK...RAW WEEK! More on that in a very near post...YES...it will be a 2 post day - today - so stay tuned!
Anyhow...when I got to work EARLY today I ran upstairs to where our Garden is at the moment and found a few surprises!
First surprise...was this flower! Yup! We have our FIRST Flower! YAY! This little gem was on one of the Dragon's Tongue Beans. It's so beautiful! I'm so excited! I'm pretty sure the two buds you see are beans in the making! We just might have some beans SOON!
Next up...SHROOMS! Check these bad boys out! They are growing randomly in a separate container near one of the other Dragon's Tongue Beans. I really don't know what this means. Maybe someone can shed some light on the subject. We have some theories! We could be TOTALLY WRONG. Casey thinks we just got our soil too wet. Karen thinks maybe it was something in the 'soil or potting mix' we used. Another person mentioned a possible or potential 'disease'. I am going to ask our local ag extension girl what kind of mushroom this is. As long as it's not poisonous I won't be too concerned.
There are THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of Mushrooms Species and I am far from an expert! Again...if anyone knows let me know in comments! I also posted on Instagram and will report back with any feedback I do receive.
