Sunflowers in the mushroom bed #Mushrooms #Gardening
Our neighbors had a tree removed that used to provide a lot of shade for our wine cap mushroom bed. Squirrels and birds plant some of the black oil sunflower seeds I put out for them, and while I would normally pull the seedlings from the mushroom bed, I left them as an experiment to see how much shade they will offer. It may turn out to be the right amount for wine caps as they like to have some sun. The mushrooms usually fruit in the fall, so we’ll see. In the meantime, enjoying the beauty.
