Haha, I just went outside when the rain let up a bit to add some diluted fertilizer to some plants and found jello on the top of the soil with the baby hostas I potted up this week. It looks funny, guess I used too much this time. It gets much bigger than I thought, wow!

LOL... even when you use the right amount, a few chunky "jello" pieces seem to work their way to the soil surface after a good, soaking rain. In the photo at the top left of the article, you can see just how big those little crystals will swell up!
