PostSubject: Melting mushrooms   Sat Apr 11, 2009 7:27 am

I have a lot of mushies growing in the lawn, anywhere even under the chooks' water trough where it gets emptied each morning.

Picked a nice large one with a white top and soft brown underside - just like the ones in teh shops - to make an omelette with as well as some with white underneath which I thought I would google before eating.

Well like most things here I just got too busy and the mushies were left on the kitchen sink for 3 days - I must have been busy as they sat there. Yesterday threw out the dried up white ones. But the brown one had MELTED. I did take a photo and will add but off for a riding lesson now. It completely turned to brown slimy toothpaste consistency.

Scary ........ Have you ever heard of melting mushies?

yes a pity pamela
dont think I would eat the ones with white underneath though , a bit risky

mushies will go like that as they are mostly water and it would have been part of its breaking down process
hope you didnt see any crawlies as they are normally there then

dont let it put you off as you cant beat home grown mushies
I will miss picking ours from our own paddocks when we move

pamela...i think the rule for eating wild mushrooms is *brown* gills. so that white one might have done you in!
something else did that brown one in...cuz we all know that mushrooms just shrivel and dry up.
so...all in all...i'm pretty happy that you were so busy and didn't get a chance to eat those!
gasp

Interestingly I almost took a photo of the ring of mushies in my lawn - about a 3 metre circle ringed with lovely brown mushies. A friend who house sitted for me for a night while I was away picked them. They did look like a fairy garden.

There's a lot in the paddock in the long grass where the horses poo. Massses and masses. I will mow over it this week and maybe spread the spore.

Where are you moving to Lorraine? Are you leaving your beautiful rose garden?? Sad sad!!!!
