A big brown mushroom appears in the garden. Only one. Much fewer small mushrooms.

Plantar box. More abundant new mushrooms

More small mushrooms grey and white appear on Feb 22, 2018 (Day 8, Mankind's birthday) in my plantar box. Lesser in the small garden, but a large brown mushroom bud is seen.

3372. Chinese New Year 6th day. 8am Feb 21, 2018. Bumper crop of small mushroomss

Feb 21, 2018  8 am. 6th day of Chinese New Year.

Surprisingly, a bumper crop of mushrooms, mainly small one of less than 1.5 cm across appear in the small garden and many more in the plantar box. See video.

I did water the plantar box yesterday morning. Now 99% countless grey small mushrooms.

3371. The dwarf hamster has no appetite again. swollen tongue

Feb 20 2018. 10m

 "Some hamster owners know more about cheek pouch impaction than the average vet," I said to the mother. "They spend time researching the internet and googling!"

The daughter in her 30s did exactly that and said: "I google and watch you tube videos of cheek pouch in dwarf hamsters. They are mainly Toa Payoh Vets' videos!"

The owner had this picture taken. There was a large right cheek pouch swelling. "He only stores in the right cheek pouch," she said. As Dr Daniel examined it, the hamster dislodged all the seeds.
So he showed the owner that there was no more seeds now and sent it home.

The next morning, the owner phoned. "My hamster is not eating!" I asked her to bring it down for a detailed examination under anaesthesia.

As at Feb 22, 2018, 6 pm, I phoned the owner.
"Don't worry he eats a lot," she said there were many stool pellets. "But he does not drink on his own!"
"A eating hamster is proof he is back to normal," I asked her to send me the picture of the stools overnight as evidence of good health.

3370. 8am, Chinese New Year Feb 20, 2018. Day 5. Only ragged and small mushrooms

Feb 20, 2018  8 am

Fewer mushrooms
A few "ragged ones" and many small ones. No more brown and white ones seen.

The crop of mushrooms is poor and not exciting. The best one is above image.

I hose the outer plantar box at 9 am after taking the pictures.
Few mushrooms were seen and so I hose the plantar box to see if more will grow tomorrow.
Hosing water damage the small and delicate ragged mushrooms. Parts of petals of the ragged mushrooms fell off.

Some small mushrooms appear in the plantar box today. Not impressive in numbers today.

Overall, a poor crop of mushrooms on the 5th day of Chinese New Year.
