getting all mushy...

I have a friend who has friend who knows all about mushrooms, someone who knows not just about cooking them but also about identifying and picking the wild ones. I must say that I am a little envious of this friend of a friends knowledge as I would love to know more about mushrooms, especially which ones are poisonous and which ones are good for use. Imagine my delight when after finding these ones today I chanced upon a talkback show about mushrooms on the Mornington Peninsula, they basically said that you shouldn't leave it to chance and that some training was required for their identification - mushroom school here I come, anyone want to join me?


  1. I see you got your photos Janis! I listened to the same radio show. I've done a mushroom hunt before but am keen to do another. I know they do them at T'Gallant and also Merricks General Store, with mushroom dishes afterward...

  2. Lovely pics Janis. I'm noticing several different fungi popping up around my garden but er, I think the marshmellow toasting school is more the one for me!!!!!!!
