Fungi do grow all year round but undoubtedly the majority fruit (in other words produce mushrooms/toadstools) in the autumn. We’ve had lovely warm weather recently and now it’s turning damp, perfect conditions for fungi! Walking in the woods with Pup I’ve seen quite a selection in the last week or two. The way they appear and disappear overnight does make them seem somewhat magical and when I was little I loved to imagine them as associated with the fairy folk, as they often were in stories (not so much these days it seems?) I can just imagine this clump as a fairy marketplace!

I have done in the past, making sure I knew the easily-recognised edible ones (and also the deadly poisonous ones so I was sure I wouldn't get the wrong ones!) As a child we only ever ate wild field mushrooms, when I saw those round white plastic-wrapped things in the shops I didn't know what they were!
