Observations autumn 2012

Is focused foraging for edible fungi justifiable?

You can say whatever you like Sheila as this is an open forum and we are all entitled to our own opinions. :D

I don't think you would be "alienating" yourself from the group as I am sure there are other members on here who share your views.

Admittedly I have consumed a number of species but these days tend not to... either because they didn't live up to expectations OR because my local area is just so poor at producing anything that could be considered "choice".

I now just focus on recording what I find, although I am not against people who collect responsibly for personal consumption (as I used to do so myself).

There are some things you can eat with a completely clear conscience. I personally really like eating Armillaria mellea, for example, and I can't imagine why any right-minded conservationist would get seriously hot under the collar about me taking a few of those for my dinner. The same would apply to Russula ochroleuca, if it were worth eating.

Welll I did the foodie forage walk at the weekend and started off with the usual info on filling minds rather than bellies. The 12 in attendance understood my stance and were quite prepared to take a little and leave the many so as to keep the balance in nature right. It ended up a really nice walk, a few bits to eat, a good bit of knowledge shared and I think some new respect had for the myco world. We stuck to the 20% rule - take 1 in 5, chatted about numerous non-edibles (which was far more interesting) and I left the group with the head chef to munch happily away after cooking the grub. It is all we can do - help people understand and hopefully show them how to pick responsibly. I try!

The feedback was good so same again next year. In fact this one seemed a rather more satisfying walk than just going oput recording - worth all leaders thinking about.

I have observed a clump of Pholiota squarrosa with the caps neatly chopped off, just like a Homo sapiens might do to a clump of Armillaria it fancied eating.

Has anybody thought of growing there own fungi and if so what was the success rate as maybe this could be a way forward also what about some posters put up in problem areas in the relevant languages I am sure most public woodlands have notice boards at the entrance or even tape them to the tree's.I also thought maybe some of the TV programs like Autumn watch,country file ect could do an piece on the importance of not over picking ect and there are numerous magazines aimed at outdoor pursuits who may do the same if approached.

Just a thought

I've thought about trying to grow fungi, but I don't have the space at the moment. Need that for vegetables!
