Over the last couple of days I’ve been going into the forest mushroom picking. This is the first year I’ve seen so many high-end mushrooms. It’s all due to the alternating rain storms and scorching ht days. The forest is damp and muddy, with small streams flowing where none have been for years.
Ordinarily we wait for autumn for mushrooms but this year my basket is filled with Boletus edulis, Boletus reticulatus and, from the meadows, Agaricus campestris.
