Tree Stump Mushrooms

Last updated on October 20, 2020

We had a big tree cut down a while back and it was in a place where stump grinding wasn’t an option. Online, articles said drilling holes and filling them with Epsom salts would kill it off and speed decomposition.

The holes retained rainwater and collected vegetative debris, creating the perfect growing space for mushroom spores. Now we have these gorgeous, perfectly spaced mushrooms ….and created fairy habitat?

    Mushrooms and fairy dwellings. Imagination and creativity. The Curmudgeon element gladly yields to a greater force – the thoughtful artist, naturalist, and storyteller. :-) xo
