 I have these mushrooms growing on my shredded wood/bush chippings in my garden.  Is anyone able to id them?  what do we reckon edible or deadly?

It depends how much I can forage.

I have a load of blackberries to use, so may make some blackberry and elderberry jam.  But wine is an option.

Thanks both.

Now to see if I can reach them.

 Near to where I live, where I pick my blackberries, there are these berries.  My question is are they elderberries? or something a bit more nefarious?

That's a good point about what we like.

Raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries (though there are loads elsewhere in the garden and locally), I love plums/damsons, kiwis and peaches.  Apples are a possibility. Unfortunately my favourite fruits are generally exotic - mango, papaya etc...

There is a short fence (~1m height)  that runs along the back of the patch so I was thinking of putting posts and wires in.

Thanks for the reply

After some ideas here.

I have cleared a bed in my garden which was full of brambles - plenty of blackberry jam and tarts this summer.  Now I am after ideas of what to put in there.

It is ~9.5m x 0.8m and faces South East (the last metre or so - south end - is slightly shaded by trees).

I was thiking of breaking the area into three sections of 3m length.

I want to do plant some raspberries - which third would be best?  Any thoughts on what other fruit would be good?
