Mushrooms Galore

Johanna had to collect mushrooms for a science project at school.

She went for a walk in the bush and came back with over 13 kinds of different mushrooms.

I had no idea that she would find this many.

And there are these HUGE puffballs growing in the fields.  See the ruler underneath....these are HUGE.

I remember picking mushrooms in the field with my grandma.  She fried them up and I thought that we would die of food poisoning....but we didn't.

She also told me about the old days when the train would stop in the field and men would get off and pick all the mushrooms and then hop back on the train and continue on their journey.

That was back when there were 2 train tracks in the field.  Now there are none....because they decided to rip them out and not use trains around here anymore.

Anyways.....I think it's just a really good year for mushrooms.

There is a saying.....

Mushrooms galore....lots of snow in store!

We will have to wait and see if this is true.



  1. What an interesting collection of mushrooms!

    I never heard that mushroom/snow quote before. It will be interesting to see if it holds true.

    1. It's a very interesting collection....and now she has to identify and research them all!
