Sometimes You Have to Look Behind the Milk

Despite spending at least half an hour in the garden each day, I somehow managed to miss a number of very interesting developments. The first would be the sudden appearance of a zucchini larger than the Man-Cub's arm. I'm not even kidding.


As an aside, while I may be able to grow zucchini, I cannot spell it to save my life. Thank you, for your patience, SpellCheck.

Moving on...

Next, there was the abundance of green beans that grew pretty much overnight. Literally over night; I just checked the bushes yesterday and didn't see more than a handful of beans worth picking, yet, today...


...bumper crop.

While zucchini and green beans growing that quickly are fairly standard for the garden, my next discovery was anything but standard. Or, expected. Or, welcome, really.


What. The. Hell.

Fungi. In my jalapeno pepper planter.  I barely like mushrooms when they are hidden in recipes; I certainly don't need them suddenly popping up in my garden. I mean; are they even edible? Professor Google was all, "Well, mayyybeee...or...maybe not". Who knows? One thing I do know is that the whole crop is now festering away in my composter where they will possibly be good for something.

Possibly.

Once again, Professor Google was all, "Well, mayyybee...or...maybe not". I am rapidly losing faith in Professor Google.

Anyhoodle, we are having green beans for dinner tonight. For dessert, we are having chocolate chip zucchini bread, because; I may not be able to utilize the mystery-mushrooms from my garden but I'll be damned if we don't take advantage of everything else.

Also, It probably wouldn't kill me to do a more thorough search of the garden in the future.
