I made tiny mushrooms for my planters, you know, because mushrooms are awesome. Though it is a little odd that the cutest mushrooms in nature are usually poisonous. For instance, I know of no red toadstools that won’t at least make people violently sick when eaten. Hmm…there’s a metaphor in here somewhere.
Also, speaking of eating dangerous mushrooms, I had to take these out of my herb planters immediately because the chickens thought they were food. It’s like living with a backyard full of toddlers. I constantly have to chase them down yelling “What did you just put into your mouth!? Give it to me!!” Of course, the chickens are not fans of being yelled at, so I have to chase them down and hope they drop whatever little piece of plastic they were tasting.
I baked the mushrooms with little twisted pieces of wire inside them to keep them upright.
