Grass - Garden - Give - Away


With all this rain we’ve been having, our grass has grown, and it needed cutting.  Today, I worked outside picking up trash that blew in from all the extreme weather and cut the grass.   While walking around the property, I noticed an area of grass that seemed to have a circular mark, almost like an out cropping, and it had mushrooms growing along the outer edge.

The front flower beds are finally showing some life, the seeds have started to germinate and pop out of the ground.

*****I’ve purchased more seeds (Cumin, Cilantro, Red Romaine, Spaghetti and Butternut Squash, Cipollina  Onions, Collards, Arugula, Amaranth, Sweet Chocolate peppers, Long Ribbed and Rhubarb Red Chard) from Baker Creek.  I can’t wait to get these seeds eventually planted.

  1. Oooo! A Fairy Ring! (the mushrooms in a ring in your lawn) I've never seen one in person, just in pictures. Better leave some teeny-tiny cakes out for the fairies so they keep your gardens safe :)

    1. Carolyn,

      I never knew it was called a fairy ring. When you commented, I had to go do some research. That is what it's called. The circle is in a dark green grass and on the outside of the circle are mushrooms. I've learned something new, thanks Carolyn.

      I don't think I will make small cakes and leave them out for the fairies. If I make any cakes, there gone before I can even try to get a second piece. I have a 20 year old that eats us out of house and home.

  2. There's a strange, green growth on your yard; might want to have that checked out. Srsly, it's nice to see green grass, as a reminder that ours will turn that color ... eventually.

    1. Rev. Paul,

      Yes the green growth is a little strange and different I must say. I learned something tonight from a blogger friend, Carolyn who mentioned I had a Fairy Ring. I had to research it, and sure enough that is what we have. It's just so unique.
      I'll send you some green stuff if you would like? :-)
      I cut the grass today and bagged it, I have plenty to share.

  3. I've finished planting my flower garden today. When we moved from indiana to florida, i planted all my indiana type of flowers. In Florida, they died within a week. NOW I'm starting to learn what will grow, and most of them are perennials. Cost effective. (My caps lock on my keyboard has potato chips crumbs under the keys and it's hard to type) have pity. I'm trying.

    I was looking at my mushrooms tonight. Grass won't grow, but mushrooms will. Did you know that the root system on mushrooms spreads for MILES? Now you will see them elsewhere and just know they're all related to the same root. fascinating.

    I saw your give-away and it made me wince. I can see myself getting poked in the eye with the fork, cut on the cheek with the knife, while trying to stick the spoon in my mouth.lol

    1. Lotta Joy,

      Yay, I'm happy for you on having your garden all planted. I'm also a bit jealous too. I had to learn myself what to plant in Oklahoma, and I did learn the hard way. Planting perennials will save you all kinds of money $$.

      Mushrooms are so unique, I learned something new about them today from a Blogger Friend. I knew the root system spread for miles, and that is so facinating.

      You should have registered for the give - away, it's a really great Ka-Bar set. Each piece can be used separately.

  4. Oh it sounds like you are going to have a great garden. I am not sure what and if I am going to put a garden in this year. So many decisions so much lack of time:) B

    1. B,

      I can only hope my garden turns out good this year, especially with the weather weve been having.
      You'll get your garden going sooner than you think.
