The Thing in the Compost Bin


A THING has suddenly appeared in the Compost Bin.

It is about 12 inches across, and appeared a few days ago. It was sort of gooey and moist then - now it is dry and brittle.

I know it is the fruiting body for what must be a lot of nice, beneficial fungus - but it looks like something from Planet X. Or like someone has mixed a sloppy dough of flour and water and poured it on there.

It is a little scary looking, but in a natural sort of way, unlike herbicides and pesticides. :-)

Looks like a forgotten pancake to me. Worst Thing found in the compost heap was a very large live rat -- eek!
