Late summer and fungi are now beginning to appear in the garden. I don't pretend to know an awful lot about these examples of garden flora, (is this the correct term?), but I have been told which specimens within the confines of the garden can be consumed with alacrity and which most definitely have to be avoided.
The examples in the photograph may not be the most photogenic specimens, but they add a meaty something to a cassoulet. I have also consumed a few examples along with free range eggs provided by the friendly attendant at the local municipal recycling facility. The remainder of the mushrooms have been sliced, bagged and consigned to the freezer.
