Email News Alerts

I love to do mushrooms!

No, I am not using them to see visions and travel to distant lands from my living room.

Instead, I have been charmed by the taste of the hundreds of edible shaggy cap mushrooms which sprung up in my lawn during the wet fall.


People are prejudiced against lawn mushrooms because, it is true, some of them will kill you. Slowly and painfully. Or, if they don’t kill you, they might inspire you to see visions and start a new religion.
