Mushrooms in October

In autumn we got a lot of different mushrooms on the pasturage. Sadly the most colourful and impressive mushrooms (green, yellow and slimy) prefer to grow only when it’s raining and when I can’t take photos. Grmbl. Neighbours ask me if I eat wild mushrooms, but since I know nothing about mushrooms, I only eat giant puffballs (Calvatia gigantea). Giant puffballs are unique.

The sheep know nothing about mushrooms either, they are clever enough not to eat any.

The camera’s harvest

The only mushrooms I caught with the camera in October were (presumably) some young shaggy ink caps (Coprinus comatus) and parasol mushrooms (Macrolepiota procera). Both are edible, but I listen to Brad’s advice and rather don’t try it.
