Thank you for using eXtension. It should be fine. They will not hurt anything. They are just poisonous for us to eat. There is a lot of water in them so they will dry up quite rapidly. They will not serve as a good mulch for the entire summer unless you have lots. If you have any further questions please contact me at jackie.buckley@ndsu.edu
