Something new this year. Seems to only have struck the fall-planted early/dwarf peas. Weird pods with separated layers, and then inside there are white fuzzes and no peas.

Here's Egregia menziesii aka Feather Boa Kelp in what must be a young stage, as it will grow very long by summer.

Here's Alaria marginata or Broad-winged Kelp, with the "broad wings" visible near the holdfasts. Alaria is a beautiful kelp, and apparently delicious and nutritious, too.

Description from Wikipedia

The Chromista are a eukaryotic supergroup, probably polyphyletic, which may be treated as a separate kingdom or included among the Protista. They include all algae whose chloroplasts contain chlorophylls a and c, as well as various colorless forms that are closely related to them. These are surrounded by four membranes, and are believed to have been acquired from some red algae.

No range data available.
