A week ago this Lemon had no fungi on it.
When I took it outside to photograph a superfine cloud of green spores blew off it.
on sale at grocery outlet 6 months ago. still just as delicious as the day we met.
On low (serpentine?) outcrop uphill from Bullfrog Road/trail, with abundant mosses and lichens.
This crustose lichen was observed growing on the trunk of a Quercus agrifolia. The host wild tree is estimated at about twenty years old and is around 22 cm DBH. The size of this patch of lichen is about three cm across, although there are numerous similar looking patches on the tree trunk. This specimen is without noticeable taste, in particular no bitter taste.
