Picking Mushrooms

    The time has come as it dose each year, the "Cantharellus cibarius" are fruiting.
    I will be pushing away from the computer, going out into the forest, geting lots of exercise, and harvesting large qunatities of these much sought-after edibles, while making a few dollars in the process.
    As this will eat up most of my free time I will not be posting very much untill late Oct. or Nov. not gone just gone inactive.
    I should be home each night and most of my computer time will be spent reading with very little time left for posting.

    Oh, I am sorry, they grow down here in Florida, I know an old hippie that got busted by a cattle farmer for jumping the fence to pick some off of the cattle dung.

    Those farmers have all the fun...........

    Mushroom, how did the harvest go? I'm not a funghi fan at all, but after your post I couldn't help but notice all the 'caps' poppin' up in the local woodland - I was gonna take shots of the "fly agaric" for my photography portfolio but its probably a little late now...

    wet weather is a fungus' best friend.

    Slinging cow chips, tax breaks, pesticides of mass destruction, farming is way too political for me.

    Oh this reminds me so much of when I was a young child and the family would go to the mushroom harvest.

    We would all hop in the car and mom always made sandwiches. When we got there we'd pick shrooms and like blue bell, we'd eat all we could and sell the rest.

    After we ate some then we normally fought purple dragons, danced with yellow frogs, and once I rode a giant goat into a battle against a large pig-butterfly monster.

    I will always fondly look back at that family time we spent together.

    Wait a minute, BC is known for it's large abundance of mushrooms, including the Pfifferling, prized for cooking throughout Europe and North America. The demand Canada-wide for B.C.-grown, exotic mushrooms has grown about 200 per cent in the past two years. Commercial harvesting of wild edible mushrooms is a growing multi-million-dollar industry in British Columbia. Only a select few get to see the purple dragons, yellow frogs and giant goats, the rest get to enjoy the fruiting body of a fungus.

    Damn, that's a lot of mushroom soup to enjoy man. I might catch you up on your late night posting.

    By the way, any exotic recipe ready for that stuff?
