  1. Sorry mate only just seen this they are Parasols mate and good eating. Should have a snake skin like stalk and be at least 6" (150mm) across. Parasol WWW.WILDFOODUK.COM A great tasting, easy to identify mushroom that is large enough to spot from afar. Cheers Arry
  2. I would not buy Jack Pike again bought jacket and trousers while back. Trousers lasted one season ferreting and the jacket supposed to be 100% water proof and it never has been. Shower proof I would call it. Now any body tell if this Hogg's jacket is any good, just want a 100% water proof jacket for mooching and mushrooming etc. Was looking at this seem very reasonable price. Greenking II Waterproof Jacket from Fife Country WWW.FIFECOUNTRY.CO.UK Greenking II Waterproof Jacket by Hoggs Professional. If you spend much of your working life ou
  3. Here are some Chanterelles I find they vary in colour the one we find in hedges and on banks covered in bushes by the river are a buff yellow like the ones you see on sale. Then a brighter one up in the woods on the side of the moors. The one thing is they must cut white they also do not have true gills more like wrinkles. There is a false Chanterelle that I find from time to time usually growing on old wood ant mounds but it does not cut white and it has proper gills. The duller creamy one. The brighter one we find in the wood on the side of the moors. The should al
  4. I have put some of these up before but a few of you lads seem getting interested in foraging for mushrooms. So here is a very safe one the Hedgehog Mushroom it does not have gills but underside of the caps is covered in little spikes. I just brush them off before cooking. We seem to find more in Spruce wood right in under the brash (old cut branches). Because they have spikes and not gills nothing you can muddle it with (Except may be I've been told a brown one that can be found in Scotland I believe). They are White or Creamy and sometimes a light Terracotta and the flesh is white also a miss
  5. Masses amounts of sugar in them high street coffees mate.

    Good post mate. I like a bit of banter with people on the checkout or people serving table etc. Also having good relations with neighbours and caring for folk. The old lady across the road I did her shopping and gave her at least three hot meal a week, was easy to make a little extra and do you know it made me feel good helping out. BIess her she was 94 I think and passed about a year ago now. I am lucky, I live in a small town in Devon where people do seem neighbourly obviously it's not the same everywhere. I take a neighbour some mushrooms they bring round some apples etc. In my opinion this
  8. Just done Spare Ribs Chips and Curry Sauce. Cheers Arry
  9. Years ago was mental keen sea angler, leagues and competition's etc. I studied the moon phases, water temperature, wind direction, state of the tides they all have an affect. But the moon I would not go fishing for Ray's or some other species if it were a full moon. Cheers Arry

    I don't know if this is right or not but hobbies and interests I think help. I like gardening and you have to plan ahead and watch the rewards. I am keen at foraging, fishing, ferreting now started metal detecting as if I needed another hobby. But it keeps the mind active thinking where you are going what bait you are going to use where you might find stuff wether that be fungi or treasure if you get what I mean. I have had some massive up sets in my life losing one of my lads 19 years ago and more recently my 16 month old granddaughter in the spring. In my view keeping active and having to pl
  11. They are nice them Ceps one of the top ones. Forgot to mention had half of the other Cep I had in that pile Lol. Will edit post thanks for reminding me of it. Cheers Arry
  12. Not sure this looks that appetising to be honest. A mix of wild mushrooms on toast cooked with smoky bacon in olive oil and garlic. Hen of the woods, Horse Mushrooms, Terracotta Hedgehogs, Chanterelles, Cep Bolete and an Oyster mushroom was handsome. Cheers Arry
  13. BBQ Lamb Kebabs Cheers Arry
  14. Go and wash your mouth out with soapy water Lol. I hope wifey don't see that it will put ideas in her head. Cheers Arry
  15. Bottom one might be Glistening Ink caps The others I don't know. So much stuff has all come up at the same time after that rain we had I don't know half of them. I've had my books out looking on line at all sorts. Too many to learn them all, me and Borr was talking on this yesterday better to just learn the easy ones and what can be muddled up with them. Then maybe learn a new one every year. Cheers Arry
