Fungus is Among Us

Being out in the great outdoors, you tend to notice what is and isn’t growing. Maybe some of you haven’t taken a peek lately, but I’ve seen a rise in the mushroom population. The recent rains in the Northeast have a lot to do with this sudden fungi increase, at least according to the mycologists. But here’s an interesting New York Times article, just in case you thought the only places to find certain mushrooms were in faraway countries or for most of us, the local supermarket.

Interested in learning more about what to pick and not to pick?  The local Massachusetts mycology group just started their fall beginner classes. Check it out if you’re looking for a new outdoor hobby. This one might be pretty cool to look into. And if you thought Colorado was all about skiing, think again. It sounds like you can plan a trip around anything these days. It may not be the romantic getaway you were thinking about but as the anonymous quote goes, “Love is like a poisonous mushroom -- you don't know if it is the real thing until it is too late.”
