(Still) waiting for that morel spring…
It’s been 4 months since we planted our morels. We turned in fresh compostables every week for two months, including charred wood and pizza oven ash. We’ve been out there watering when the weather is dry.
But as of today, all we have to show for our efforts is one slug, a tall patch of thriving weeds (?), and one small, mysterious sprout. (The chard sprout we posted on earlier withered away.)
Kathy Brenzel, our garden editor, thinks the weedy things could be Gloriosa daisies.
Here’s today’s mysterious sprout, right in the middle.
We were hoping it was a mushroom, but it has a dubious-looking green stem. Sigh. Come on, morels, grow!
