Field Mushrooms are pushing up through the warm damp earth in our paddocks after the heavy rain on the first weekend of the Strathbogie Ranges fungi festival.
Many farmers lament the loss of the field mushrooms they remember from their childhood. Unfortunately superphosphate kills off these fungi and most have disappeared from farmland . You will need to find un-supered pastures to collect your bucketful of mushrooms.
I gathered enough to make mushroom soup for lunch today.

*Rain means clouds which will block views of the night sky therefore the STAR GAZING evening at Terip will be postponed until Friday 6th May ( 2nd option date)
*Rain will also stimulate fungus growth. We were getting worried that fungi would be hard to find during the Fungi Festival. May is usually the peak season for fungi foraging and if the forecasted heavy rain arrives over the weekend, it should start sprouting.
Bookings for the first event of the festival are still open.
Fungi expert Alison Pouliot will give an informative presentation about fungi species, ecology and uses. Lunch will be supplied as part of the deal then we’ll head into the Strathbogie forest on a foraging expedition.
Saturday May 7th 2016 starting at 10.30am – finishing 4.30pm The venue is Strathbogie Hall.
If are finding booking via Everbrite tricky please book by phone Janet Hagen 57904268 or emailing Penny firstname.lastname@example.org
