Much room for mushrooms

I cannot say I know anything about mushrooms other than I love to eat them.

I have no idea what the ideal growing environment is (I would have thought damp and dark) but we seem to be cultivating LOTS at our place at the moment. This is a surprise to me as although the Waikato can be quite damp and humid at times - we're just at the end of the hottest, driest summer on record. There have been some rain storms lately so perhaps it was enough to make the seemingly dry ground, wet enough for a fungus party. Who knows?!

The only thing is I'm too scared to try and eat any!


I know I could look them up and there are ways and means to find out if they are edible or poisonous - but I'm just too much of a wuss! For all I know we could be growing the most expensive, rare, delicious mushrooms, or, they could be the potent, arsenic, just touch me and you'll shrivel up ones.

So I won't be doing anything other than photographing them unless someone can name and label them and tell me that they are 100% safe to eat. 

And no, I haven't seen any fairies under them yet - but I wouldn't be surprised...
