    And of course, there are some fungi that are ok to eat ... unless you take alcohol with them ... and if you do that the mixture may kill you. 🤮😱

    That would be from Coprinus variety. For example Shaggy Ink Cup. You can't drink alcohol while you eating and 24 h after. It won't kill you, but stomach cramps and nausea are guaranteed. Btw, it's delicious mushroom. I took this photo last year.

    Oh yes ... I love Shaggy Ink Caps ... but I think Wood Blewits and Giant Puffballs are my favourites of the ones we get in the areas where I can forage.

    Wood Blewits don't grow in my area but Giant Puffballs does. This one is on meadow near my cottage.

    Oooh I love them ... sliced, dipped in beaten egg and breadcrumbs and fried in butter ... the food of the gods 😋

    Hi @Ante30 👋 Interesting thread with some lovely pictures. 🙂

    How did you start your oyster mushrooms? Did you buy a log impregnated (already sown) with the spores or did you introduce the spores yourself?

    I prepared logs myself, only bought mushrooms micelle on wooden caps. First i drilled a holes in logs (25 cm space between every hole) and buried logs half meter in soil. Then I put wooden caps in the holes with tweezers, keep it moist and that is it.

    Thanks Ante - I might have to have a go at that myself next year - we're taking down a couple of trees so I'll have some decent size logs.

    I guess you bought the micelle from the internet? Going to have a look to see which varieties I could grow...🙂

    You must choose wood carefully. Conifer and oak are not the best choice because mushrooms will have bad taste. Beech or ash are the best.
    Yes, I bought micelle an internet.

    Never got round to doing a pic of the mushrooms, but I did find the frog. He was hiding under the hog house  :D
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
