soaked beans in a ceramic bowl - both the bowl and the beans turned blue-ish

I soaked some dried beans in a ceramic bowl for about 8 hours. Both the beans and the bowl turned blueish. Are the beans now safe to eat? Or are they contaminated with glaze leached from the bowl? Is the bowl safe to use? I have had that bowl for 20 + years. I have attached: 1) Picture of the package that the dried beans were from with more from the same batch still there. They were purchased recently. 2) Picture of the outside of the bowl. Until recently, the inside looked about the same. 3) Picture of the inside of the bowl with blue-ish stain spots. I would include a picture of the soaked beans with blue-ish spots, but I only seem to be able to attach 3 photos.

Truffle found under a cedar tree in Wa. State.

OK first I apoligize for trying to answer a question someone asked about a truffle. There was no available space to use to answer. Ok the question is...is this a white truffle? I found it under a cedar tree...Wa. state./\ The answer is tricky. Yes what was found is a truffle. However it is not an edible truffle. What was founded d is commonly called a "Dear Truffle" they for all intents look like a white Orgon Trufile or the alba white truffle. When you pick it up. A person with experience can tell right away that they've be bamboozled. If you take the fungi place between your pointer finger and thumb. Squeeze gently and you will find that it's comparative to a sponge. The truffle your looking for has the consistency of a potatoes. The dear truffle also will leak liquid as you squeeze it. Sorry again about answering in this forum. I tried to find the right spot to respond but could not find it.

Is my young apricot tree dying?

I planted an apricot tree in early May of this year. My soil was tested and said to be good. I purchased a young peach tree around the same time and planted on the other end of the yard. The peach tree is growing and flourishing. The apricot tree is losing leaves and doesn’t seem to have grown much at all. I’m not sure what’s happening. It gets plenty of sun and water every day. I’ve “fed” it as well, once per month.
