Hello everyone. Glad I made it to the new board. This one is much nicer.

I got a new problem that surprised me. I have found some sort of fungus growing in my SFG. It is not mushrooms at least not any kind that I have seen. I was clearing out the square where my diseased tomato plant was last year to do new planting when I discovered it. At first site I thought it was the remnants of the peat container that last year's tomato plant came in. It looks like some sort of wavy looking fungus. There may even be two kinds of fungus. In the one square it is real bad and I see some growing in the square next door.

So I ask what should I do? Should I just remove these two squares and the dirt that is in there. Or could I flip the dirt over and wait awhile and then replant in these squares?

I'm no expert on this but... I would take out all the dirt in those squares and replace it. I wonder if the spores got into your wood?

I hope someone else with more experience can help you. Keep checking back.

I'd replace also. And maybe email a picture to your local extension office. they were awesome when I was trying to identify friend or foe.

Just to clarify, the walls of my SFG are not made of wood. They are colored concrete that is normally used for edging.

I did take a picture of the fungus and based on your advice and the others here I am just going to remove the dirt. I have extra compost so I can use that.

Keep us posted on the outcome this summer and let us know when you have them identified. Perhaps if you post a picture someone on the forums could help identify them.

I've never engaged the county extension office. Is that a lot of work or expensive?

What Grid said, they are free and I know that here in Michigan they have a help email. I've emailed them pics and they have helped me all the time. Sometimes it take a while to get back since this is also their busy season, but most are very helpful and master gardeners.

The only think i can think of one would have to pay for is any classes or a soil test ( for traditional gardening)
