Interesting stuff isn't it? When I put in my latest lantana bed I used mulch from the Agricenter, mostly sawdust from animal pens that has been composted for about a year in a pile behind the place. There was an interesting display of growth in several spots of the mulch. I found it rather colorful and eye catching, but it didn't last long. It was tiny snuff box type fungi, hundreds of them in a mass that would release spores when punctured. (Yours may be different, but I bet it is a fungus.) I had plenty of time and punched a few. One must enjoy the roses and the fungi as we pass through life.

Tony--according to what i've read, the slime molds thrive oon decomposing wood...i get them, and wonder if that means the sides of my raised beds are going to be disappearing...
I have also read of those who claim they taste good..
HTH,

Hey...people eat truffles. Do you ever wonder who first discovered some of our stranger foods? If I could be a passenger in a time machine, I'd like to find out who the hell first decided to dissect an artichoke, or eat sea urchin roe.
