This is the time of year for Mushrooms. As children we used to pick buckets of mushrooms in the field beside our house, this year there seem s to be a scarcity of mushrooms, probably a combination of bad weather and fertilisers being used on the land
If you are aÂ forager there are wild mushrooms in the woods â€“ but be sure what you have picked is edible itâ€™s not worth risking poisoning yourself if youâ€™re in any way unsure.
