A great place to explore mushrooms, both the edible and the more enlightening kinds.

OMG! A whole forum about mushrooms!!!!!!!! I actually follow a page on FB about mushrooms. Vikings and Romans used to eat them all the time, some mushrooms (they said) were healers, some brought wisdom and some gave you access to the world of the gods..... I guess that nowadays  we'd call those people drug addicts or mentally ill.

I think we need to step back into the past.... and reunite the wisdom of the ancients with ours.

Great link, Tim! Very Happy

Jaks can identify mushies too. They are a staple food in the CR.

She can pinpoint the edibles ones, very useful.

I can identify only a couple of varieties, I learned when I was a child in italy, my dad would spend hours walking the woods foraging. Oh the aroma those mushrooms had was incredible! The supermarket ones are so bland in comparison.

My dad's friend also had two dogs that were trained to look for truffles, it was so exciting for us kids to see the dogs going mad when they thought they had found some.

The common field mushrooms in NZ are absolutely beautiful. Its a great memory of mine from childhood foraging through the paddocks, then cooking them up in a white sauce. I could go some right now.

Oh aye Rog. I have a few growing in my lawn here too. And the giant 'Horse' mushies that come from a neighbours horse paddock.

Yeah Ags, truffles are fun to find. Some peeps tried to get them growing here but weren't successful, they need Oak and Plane trees to grow on.
