I know it isnt technically considered a plant, but I have to share.
I harvested this 36lb Maitake Mushroom tonight from my back yard. I am quite proud of it. :)

Unfortunately, its already been harvested and shared with friends.
Funny how proud I am of it and I didnt even do anything. And I don't even eat mushrooms.

Wow! That's some mushroom. I love it when you don't have to put a lot of work into something for such a big reward. :)

That's an astounding 'shroom!

my candidate and called it a political vegetable.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
