So, somehow I never got around to removing all of last year's dead plants from the garden until I went to plant this year's plants. Yes, I'm aware that this is a bad habit and will lead to parasite and mildew problems. Whatever.
Anyhow, in clearing out the old plants I came across this perfect little globe. I'm pretty sure it's left over from a tomatilla.
How cool is that?
It survived almost an entire year outside in the mud, but it's light and fragile.
It seems like the slightest touch would break it apart.
Anyhow, my new plants (including okra!) have been planted and surrounded with composted manure. It ought to be interesting back there...
