More Toadstools

On a lovely mild sunny afternoon we decided on a bit more tidying up on the plot.

Trying to outdo that Fly Agaric toadstool we saw at RSPB Fairburn Ings on Thursday, on the plot was this group of toadstools.
I've no idea of the name of these toadstools but they've been left to do their own thing. I was a bit surprised to find that fruits on our alpine strawberries hadn't turned mouldy or mushy with all the damp wet weather of the last few days.
Slugs had done far more damage to the fruits than the wet weather but I still managed a little harvest, certainly enough to give us a taste of fresh strawberries in the middle of October. There’s still a few more fruits to come if the weather holds.
Picking these along with some Joan J raspberries made for a couple of easy jobs to mix in with some autumn digging.

  1. It's definitely a good time of year for fungi - moist and mild.
