I would assume that, too. Your soil must be in good health, indeed.

My goodness, yes! Take very good care of your liver and all other parts of your body!

Joan, Amanita is poisonous. From reading, no reports of fatalities, but I plan on keeping what is left of my liver. :-)
I will just let it do its thing and return to the earth.
Our yard has many mushrooms. I assume that means good soil health.

It is so pretty; why the caution? I know nothing about mushrooms, obviously, other than what I just now read..

What do you intend to do with it? Or to it?

In our yard today.  I think this is Amanita muscaria.

Regardless of whether that ID is correct, we are not getting near this one.

I'm envious, Bertold. I've nursed my lone rhodie for 5 years. It's hangin' by a thread.

It's a beauty, Bertold, but isn't its timer half a year slow?

Comment by Daniel W on December 6, 2015 at 1:04pm

Bertold, that's a beautiful rhodie.  Really beautiful.

Joan, I really enjoy hearing about your geodesic dome greenhouse.  I don't know if we will do something similar, but I daydream about it.

One of our chickens now seems to be poking holes in the eggs.  We don't know which chicken.  I don't know if she's trying to murder competition's babies, or sipping their juices.

On my family farm, previous farmers had plowed the waterways to maximize fields.  The result was massive gullies.  The Missouri dept of conservation paid for earthen dams across the gullies.  Two resulted in an acre pond, each, and one was about 1/4 acre.  The smaller one silted over, resulting in no more gully above the dam. I never heard of swales at the time, but I guess that's what it became.  My dad stocked the ponds with bluegill and crappie, and we braved the mosquitoes to fish for them.  If the fish were doing their jobs eating mosquito larvae, I didn't know it.

They also provided seedling trees, something like $5 for a bundle of a hundred.  We planted hundreds of trees.  In the end, there was more forest.  The remaining land was never good - either clay or sand.  It was never very productive.  I don't know what it's like now.

We've lived here 14 years now, and this one rhodie blooms every December.

Interesting, Joan. Always a fount of knowledge.
