Rain, rain and more rain. I'm sick of it. Between breaks in the rain it's to wet to do anything but suffer the humidity and watch shrubs lose leaves from a blight.
That's my bitching for the day!

Glad you finally got some rain Randall.  

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 12, 2014 at 7:15am

You're correct King.  Those are beet seedlings.

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 12, 2014 at 7:14am

Randall, thanks.  I will not try to multiply them!

Comment by Randall Smith on May 12, 2014 at 7:08am

Spud, I don't know the actual names, but they're definitely not edible! Very poisonous. Our edible mushroom season never occurred this spring--too dry. I did receive 2.2" of rain over night, however! Still, it's too late, I'm afraid. But the rain sure will help the garden!

Are those beet seedlings I see in the back
Comment by Idaho Spud on May 11, 2014 at 3:50pm

Randall, do you know what kind of mushrooms these are, and if they are edible?  They are about one inch tall and last less than a day.  I was keeping these grow-pots very moist and up these popped.

I'm going to plant them behind the garage where I have a pile of soil that has a lot of wood chips and other organic matter in it, and keep it moist to see what I can produce.

Glad you checked out the site, Barbara. It's more amazing in person. I'm just happy my family farm is being transformed into a worthy cause. The days of "corn and beans" are disappearing there.

Spud, I totally agree with you. My farm kids wonder why I continue gardening when I can get all I want from them. I just enjoy doing my own thing! It's in my blood.

Barbara, keep me posted on how it behaves in your TX garden. 

Comment by Barbara Livingston on May 10, 2014 at 8:28am

Randall, your son has a very impressive operation. Amazing the size and production with such a small staff.  Gkids are cute too :)
