You can probably tell by the black, wrought iron “arm” at the left side of the photo that this is a firewood rack. That top log that is growing such fabulous mushrooms is a piece of an old apple tree. I wish I knew more about mushrooms and could do more than simply admire them–but I know enough to know what I don’t know and I have no plans to poison myself accidentally because those mushrooms “look just like “–see that’s the problem. I don’t even know that. I will stick to growing mushrooms in my kitchen.
Which brings me to the “irony” part of this post. Remember last year’s Christmas gift to the Spoiler? The log that was supposed to grow mushrooms?
That’s it, right there next to that beautiful mushroom growing piece of apple tree. It’s about the ONLY log on the pile without a mushroom on it. Ridiculous. It’s the one with the broken metal plaque on it.
And please don’t tell me that it seeded the rest of the logs with mushroom spore, because if that were the case, it too should have something growing on it!
Anyway, it was a bust. Oh well. Live and learn.
