Much more useful than the fungi growing in my garden at the moment, Phallus impudicus. There are six or seven out at the moment and they really are stink horns.

I always like to find a stinkhorn, they are very interesting and quite funny!
When I was young, my friend ‘Steve’ found a stink horn and bought it around to my house to show me!
He went onto become a doctor and for the last 35 years I have called hIm Dr Stinkhorn…

Took a Quick snap just before the Rain flattened them. They are ok-ish again now but still not quite the same.

I tend to leave plants that have sown themselves out alone if it doesnt immediately bother me. So now there is this large Eryngium flower right in the walkthrough to our bbq terrace. Thats all fine, but it is attracting so many bees and flies and all things flying thats its becoming a bit scary walking past it. Its all harmless but still a cloud of flying insects evokes a primal 'OMG GET 'EM OFF' response in me. I wanted to upload a vid too, but its too big, so that will have to wait till I can make it a smaller one.

Happy to post you a few.

Apparently they are edible before they "engorge" but I'm too scared to try them. Found half a dozen hidden in the ferns today plus a few more ready to pop.

I left them all there despite the stink because they are interesting and don't last long.

Nowhere near as good as all of yalls gardens, but all I can manage in my apartment.

These are my sub irrigated planters with peppers, herbs, and tomatoes. The tomatoes were a bit light starved early in the season so grew super tall and leggy. Now they reach over my head (6' 2") and have grown together into a tangled mess. So top heavy the keep pulling the trellis over!

Sadly, I think I will have to bleach and reset these planters next season since it looks like my peppers are suffering from a disease that looks very similar to last season.
