        Nothing nicer than freshly picked field mushrooms.

            They look good Jiffy! I used to go mushrooming with my dad when I was young. Up at the crack of dawn and off over the fields and marshes. :)

              It was a bonus of spreading horse manure on the borders here that I got a bumper crop of field mushrooms two years running. Two barrowloads each year :) They preserve well in Kilner jars, pre-cooked and sterilised. They've not come back this year, but I do get pine cepes under my sole parasol pine. They grow in the lawn! It seems fair that, having every fungal disease known to man, the garden also has the useful sort :biggrin:

                When I saw the title of this thread I assumed @Jiffy had gone on a diet.

                And he was talking about his feet.:lunapic 130165696578242 5::sofa:
