Post Re: Wild Mushrooms
See that's funny, because there is no way I would pick and eat a mushroom that looked like that!!! As a kid, and to this day, if it wasn't nearly black underneath, or at least a healthy looking dark brown, then I went nowhere near them. My kids still panic when I pick wild 'shrooms off the oval or under the trees. They hear of deathcap 'shroom deaths and get all worried. I saw some HUGE mushies last week under the trees at the Academy of Science, about the size of a large saucer. Nice and white with brown gills. Trouble is I was at work and nowhere to put them or carry them in :cry:

I reckon some of the 'shroom ilnesses come from the popularity of the asian mushrooms that are in supermarkets these days. These things look like the worst kind of fungus/toadstool imaginable, clinging to a rotten log. So people arent as cautious about wild mushies as you need to be. I still cant eat them :D

I'm hoping with the rain we've been having that there's a bumper crop in Autumn :D

The farm is growing... alpacas, llamas, sheep, goats, donkeys, geese, ducks, guinea fowl and chooks
