By the way, if you were thinking you can join them in picking the mushrooms you will not be allowed. At least we were not since there are poisonous varieties. Only a seasoned person knowing the idiosyncrasies of the mushrooms can pick the good ones. Be sure though to accompany them into the yard, watching them pick these beauties, the mushrooms popping up like teeny weenie umbrellas on rain soaked drift wood is spectacular. As much as I like to have fun seeing or even occasionally picking some mushrooms its great that they are cultivated abundantly. No more back breaking picking for my grandma who will never agree it’s a chore. I think she enjoys it. I know I would
