Spores! More Spores... The Perfect Weather for Spores!

A few weeks back when I was tending the wet damp mess of a yard due to the week of rain and no sun... I found this.


The Top is to the Left and the Bottom is to the Right.

The first sunny day after a week of spore weather, I found this growing in the mulch at the base of the blue container. What is it? A very phallic mushroom, I'd say. Why is this important? Weather plays a big role in creating conditions for growth be it our tomatoes or spores. Some spores are mushrooms and some are disease.

I have never seen this before in my garden. It came in out of a bag of mulch I put in this year I suppose.  The right weather and bingo. Something alien.
