Hi, I'm new here because frankly need help. Woke up yesterday and there was a large (10-12" dia) yellow clump of something on my mulched garden. It frankly looked like a large "dump" but bright yellow. This morning I woke to find two more - but on the other side of my sidewalk. There is also a brownish ring not too far from the first one. Has anyone a clue? I have to admit I have a brown thumb...

Second off, I'm going to move your post into the

And third, it is common to get those in mulch piles,

It is called....

Thanks for the welcome, Weezie. The name is much more fitting, believe, then yellow rings! :-)

I thought the exact same thing when I got my first pile.. and thought, oh my goshhhh [shocked]
But then examined it a bit, *not too close mine you [Wink] * and noticed it wasn't quite..
and did some research and found that info.....

Keep us posted on how your brown thumb [Wink] is doing!!
Always glad to help those brown thumbs turn green you know!

Thanks!. My husband (passed away 9 yrs ago) had a fantastic green thumb! He could take a brown stick and make it flower. Unfortunately, anything that came under my care inevitably required his attention to keep it green! Ha! Glad to know this slime isn't bad. Are you from upper New York?

I am in Western, New York, about 50 miles South of Buffalo and 90 minutes North of the Pa border, almost in a straight line...
We do have some from more around NYC area....

I am sorry to hear about your husband...
That is very cute about the brown stick and making it flower....
*My dad had a great green thumb too and an ability to build rock gardens, rock walkways and rock walls, and I just didn't get that gene I guess... [Eek!] * and I love rocks with a passion. [Cool]

We'll have your thumb green growing lot's of plants...just keep asking questions... and start out with foolproof, *no pun intended* plants..
My garden is FULL of those types of plants..
HONESTLY!!!
*cause if I really need to take care of it, it's in trouble!*
Being very busy, and too many iron's in the fire..

Welcome! I'm new also and live in Round Rock, TX. which is a suburb of Austin. You'll see all kinds of new critters and crud in Texas but plants do grow here for a very long season if you can get them through the heat of summer. This site is fabulous with all kinds of information and really neat people. The site has sections I've never heard of before and even a "Private" section for, I don't know what! I have not seen another site like this for us Gardening types. Anyway, welcome to Texas and the Garden Helper.
