since the Halloween is almost here it's also
fitting because it does look like a hollow weenie
when the green goo gets washed off.
however this pic is more appropriate for Halloween:
The stinkhorn is Mutinus elegans. It is actually edible while in the
egg stage, but no one would even consider it at this stage. It evolved
to have its' spores spread by carrion flies, thus smells like carrion
when the spores are mature. The green goo is the spore mass.
was there a weed barrier layer under
the bark chips? we put down a weed
barrier fabric (that does let water and
air through) before putting down the
wood chips. makes it much easier to
keep weeds from getting down too deep
if they happen to sprout.
i have innoculated the wood chips with
morel juice, but it may not be the right
place for them.
