So, besides liking rocks, I like growing things. My cousin called me up and said she had a bunch of "Fern Humps" for me, dug out of the garden of my 92 y.o. aunt. (I'm like — WTF are "fern humps?")
THIS is what they are. The fiddleheads are all coiled up inside, ready to burst forth. What is cool is that they are originally from a clump in my grandmother's garden, so this strain of ferns is over 70 years old. They will still be doing their fern thing when I am long gone.
