I wish I was one of those clever (and brave) people who know about fungus. I have some crackers growing in the garden at the moment and I would love to know if they are edible. Wild mushrooms have always fascinated me since I was a child. We were a boating holiday and my parents bought some wild mushrooms from a lady working at a local windmill. She had picked them in the fields that morning. When they got them back to the boat they decided not to risk it and binned them. Since then I have had aspirations about gathering food from hedgerows and taking it home for a free meal. I have never had the courage to follow it through, apart from a few apples and blackberries of course. I don't even think a good field guide would help, I would still not trust myself. Sickness or death is not terribly appealing so I will continue with Asda's own brand!
|Probably not....although they do remind me of bread rolls|
|The least appetising looking, rather like dead flowers. Probably the only edible ones of the bunch!|
