action shots and things that hide

At the beginning of the week, we thinned our tomatoes and eggplant and relocated the squash to roomier digs ~


They'll be heading out to a cold frame in the near future -- we've got lots of salvaged windows that we'll be putting to good use.

The kids found some mushrooms tucked between the great big hackberry tree and the monster wisteria vine ~


Using our handy dandy pocket naturalist guide to mushrooms, we think we have identified these as Common Psathyrella (Psathyrella candolleana). Or something like that.

Turkey Tail (Trametes versicolor) on a log, I think ~


We're gathering enough eggs to be able to give some away these days, but Lee came across this wild nest underneath some salvaged materials in the yard. As much as we don't need any more eggs (or chickens), it's still a little disappointing that these weren't deposited in the coop ~

Wow, I don't know much about chickens but that's a lot of eggs. :) Glad to see that your seedlings are doing well.

Wow, that is a lot of eggs for something or multiple somethings to have hidden.

Your pics of the seedlings reminds me that I haven't started mine yet. It's only the beginning of spring, how can I be behind already??

Hey Lythrum! Yes, it was a crazy lot of eggs! We've found wild nests like that before. So far, so good on the seedlings....

Hi TCE! You can't really tell from the picture, but there was the same assortment of eggs we get in the coop -- brown and pinkish and white and blue/green. So either half of the chickens are laying there, or all of the chickens are laying there about half of the time.

We're actually behind on starting most of our stuff as well. We still have gads of them to go. Not enough time in the day....

The turkey feathers are beautiful, what a great name for them!

Funny quote on the Psathyrella candolleana..

It "is listed as edible in most field guides, but it should not be eaten; identification of this mushroom is not easy. Rather than considering this mushroom for the table, I recommend proving your devotion to the mushroom world by considering Psathyrella Candolleana for your baby girl's first and middle names; there's a nice ring to it!"

My bibliographic style is awful, sorry about that! The link takes you to the full quote and source ;-).

Hey J! The funniest thing about that quote is that, when read in the context of the larger work, he appears to be absolutely serious! Most of his pictures don't look quite like the one in our field guide, but some of his description holds true. We don't ever fool with wild mushrooms, so poisonous or not, these will not be going in the soup!
