Woodland shade gardening with a purpose – pleasure, creativity, rainwater collection!
That strange mucky thing in the creek mud that you first saw in Call it what you may… has kept me questioning what it is. I went back to the creek and lifted it out of the creek with some old kitchen tongs, and cut it in half with an old butcher knife. I mention that these are old, because I threw them away after using them for this experiment! I don’t know WHAT might be in that mud, because the creek routes rainwater runoff from so many yards and streets in this area.
But, here it is – the mystery item is simply a piece of waterlogged, aged wood! How long has it been there? Why is the top so rounded? How was I able to push the knife into the top of it then wiggle the knife to break it apart so easily? The wood can’t talk, so I will probably never know!
