The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Not mush-room around here!

A few weeks ago I posted a few photos of a walk through our local area including one of these mushrooms.

Today, while walking to the shops we spotted these impressive flat specimens.

It’s frustrating that I don’t know if they are edible as they certainly looked tasty.

As we carried on our stroll we spotted a few more.

Though these looked flatter and more suspicious.

In our own garden we found these.

They’re a type of puffball but we still don’t know if they are dangerous.

Meanwhile these look like oyster mushrooms don’t they? That yellow tinge seens familiar!

This fella looks a bit scarier though.

I’m really keen to find a fungi course to learn more about these amazing creatures.

Meanwhile after numerous attempts to grow mushrooms from kits

I may well try this method next time growing oyster mushrooms from coffee grounds

Have you ever tried to grow mushrooms?

Do you forage for mushrooms in your local area?

    A while back we went down to view the Roman fish ponds near us in North Cyprus and rock tombs, and came across a local restaurant owner who was fossicking for mushrooms for his meals. Also here the locals go hunting for weeds which are considered nutritious and as good as anything available in the veggie supermarkets.

    The ones in the second pic are edible. As long as the stalk doesn’t go bulbous where it meets the ground 😉

    I think you can eat puffballs when they are immature, but I’ve never tried them.

    I often wonder about the mushrooms I see but wouldn’t eat any unless an expert could identify them for me. I just rely on the people at the farmers market for cultivated ones. This reminds me I have some photos I should post.
