About to eat these mushies. Safe?

Posted: 14/08/2016 at 08:42

Not scaremongering at all - mushrooms are said to be growing in brought in turf - there's no knowing what soil/composot/soil conditioners have been used, let alone where the garden is - it could be on a woodland fringe - we get woodland species in this garden - house built in 1960s on old orchard.

To suggest that any fungus is edible over the internet, let alone without a picture is, IMHO totally irresponsible.

I turned the hose down a crack for an hour once. The surface never even got damp!

Good morning all

Any tips for him Doc - or just a plaster for his grazed shoulder

Hello Pdoc 

Is anyone getting up with me to watch Mo Farah at 1:20 ? I've set my alarm. I need a couple of hours sleep first ...

I can manage 40 Fairy, 'cos I can borrow OH's fingers and toes - but thank goodness that although he lived there he wasn't born in Lincolnshire, otherwise he'd have webbed feet and I'd get in a terrible muddle 

I keep meaning to say that I bought a pair of these about a month ago and they're rapidly becoming my favourite tool - I can trim the grass around the back of the pond so easily now, and loads of other jobs - they're very versatile!

Maybe someone cleverer than us will explain it to us girls very simply Fairy ... goodness knows how I managed to understand it when my son was competing for the county ... it's all so complicated  

feeding the birds

I think it's in the birds' nature to 'fill up' at one food resource and then move on to another - I've never seen them flit from one place to another if a lot of food is available in one place they take it.
