Mushrooms, Increasing Production, Potatoes
« on: November 29, 2020, 12:21 »
I'm preparing a new bed for next year's potatoes and we seem to have a lot of mushrooms growing around the place. Upping our production and why.

There seems to be a lot of different fungi about this year.
if you are out walking keep your eyes open.
As to whether they do any harm?? not sure.

Nice to look at, those shrooms.  Best not to eat  :ohmy:

I think planning ahead is wise; none of us know what next year will bring.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

They don't do any harm, the opposite in fact. Unless you eat the wrong one, of course. :)

Fully agree with that John, I've been reading quite a lot recently about the benefits of micorrhizal fungus.
Top photo looks like a Waxcap (possibly an older Scarlet Waxcap), the others appear to be a type of cup fungus (Peziza).

I thought the top one might be a waxcap but I'm very ignorant when it comes to mushrooms. It's rather magnificent though :)

I hadn't thought about Honey Fungus - thing is that most fungi seem to be very beneficial to the soil ecology, hence my comment. Strange how we know stuff about Lunar regolith and even the Martian soil but are still learning about how the soil under our feet works.
