I garden in zone 23 (San Diego). Recently while digging in decomposed granite, I uncovered about six white jelly bean sized thingys I had never seen. I am about 10 inches down. So curosity killed this cat and I fondled and squeezed and a mucous like flem substance comes shooting out. I sensed it to be an embryo of some kind. (I had to squeez them all). Did I kill something potentially wonderful and rare? The next Grandous Supermanous? Anyone?
