I threw my picked strawberries in a plastic sack last June and put them in the freezer. When retrieved for use, I run them in water, de-stem, then nuke 'em to thaw. Works for me!

Mine being a xmas cactus that is.  And this is the wrong time of year but I found out last summer that if I refrigate berries before I  wash them they handle much easier.  They also don't stain as bad and don't get mushy. It only took me four decades to learn that.  I wanted to pass it on while it was on my mind.

Mine started off with beautiful blooms but then the temps came up and it's stopped.  It was lovely while it lasted though.

Gorgeous! We're under snow now so everything is finished for sure.

In Bloom now.  These make me happy.

I am going to be very careful about mycelium in my garden. I had planned to put some under my conifers. I think I will contact the WSU extension agent and have a heart to heart talk with him/her

I knew about the underground mycelium being the real plant and the mushrooms the fruit, but all this extra info is new to me. Thanks!

Long Before Trees Overtook the Land, Earth Was Covered by Giant Mus...     Smithsonian.com  July 17, 2013 3:14 pm

"But even though the spire-like mushrooms of yore—or whatever they were—are long gone, don’t feel too bad for funguskind. The largest organism on Earth, says ABC, is still a huge fungal mat, a single organism spread over 2,200 acres of forest in eastern Oregon."

Spud, that's hilarious!

Then there's the X-Files episode when Mulder and Scully are engulfed by a malevolent fungus....

Joan, I wonder - are there no conifers around the Oregon giant fungus?  It's been there thousands of years and cover thousands of acres.  Maybe it only eats bad trees?
