There are a lot of varieties of mushrooms in our local area at the minute, but I know nothing about identifying them and to be honest I'm a little scared of accidentally poisoning my family. So I've taken photographs and I'm going to try to find out what they are.
Some of them closely resembled the "brown field mushrooms" you can buy in the supermarket. They were growing in the boggy part of a grassy field, as were some that I'm pretty sure are shaggy ink caps, which are edible.
Some of them I think are the fairy ring type. There were loads of them but they're very small. Some were growing in the grass and others in wood chips under the swings in the park.
The most interesting ones were growing in a very shady part of my garden under a evergreen tree. I'm looking forward to adding them to the "Now Picking" section of my sidebar.
