Autumn is probably the time most associated with going hunting for mushrooms. On a good day we can fill our baskets with a huge variety of delicious gourmet fungi.
Last autumn was a memorable one in this respect, but mushrooms can, in fact be found throughout most of the year if conditions are right.
St George’s mushrooms have now decided to join the party, or at least a handful of them have. The ones I’ve seen are still minuscule so they’re not ready to pick yet but they’re on their way and I’m getting more than a little bit excited at the prospect of tucking into a mushroom risotto.
