Autumn Mushrooming

Autumn is the perfect time for putting on the wellies and getting out and about mushroom hunting.Mushroom

Field Mushrooms are usually found after rain in fields grazed by cattle or horses and sometimes in parks and on lawns.  It has a white cap and grows between 3-10cm diameter, umbrella shaped with pink gills underneath that change to red-brown then dark brown as they get older. They can easily be confused with other poisonous mushrooms so if in doubt don’t eat them!!  Why not involve the whole family and make it a competition to find the most or the biggest mushroom.

If the Mushrooms manage to elude you this Autumn why not try growing your own, they’re ideal for children and
perfect for the winter months.

Hooray for Some Sunshine!!

Hooray, finally the rain stopped and some sunshine put in an appearance.  We took the opportunity to get back into the garden and get planting.  We’re on a vegetable growing mission this year, we’ve got leeks, potatoes, carrots, parsnips, tomatoes and onions amongst others, already out in their planters or growing in the greenhouse, our 7-year-old concentrated very hard whilst wrapping the runner beans around the canes and planting lots of lettuce, she had a bit of help with our mini gardeners kit which includes gloves, spade and a fork all suitable for little hands.  We all finished up very muddy and a bit proud of ourselves, we can’t wait for them all to grow so we can enjoy some fresh vegetables through the summer.

We also decided to plant something a bit different, popcorn seeds which grow into popcorn we can actually eat.    The children had great fun planting them and we’re all very excited to watch them grow, we’ll keep you updated as to how we get on but why not buy your own and let us know how you do!
