Not carrots

There's all sorts of stuff growing in our space. My eyes see the birds first and foremost, but I'm watching everything. If the mulberries were within human reach I'd be gorging on them too.

I do pick the apples when they're ripe. The trick is to find the ones that haven't been sampled by the birds and bugs.

But these are the weirdest and I don't know what they are, possibly some kind of fungus. They grow tall, about 16", carrots in reverse, attract bugs, eventually fall over and disappear. They grow up out of the wood chips.

I call them the death plant. Scientific name.
