Autumn Mushrooms

As Autumn progresses there are free gifts if you know where to look, I am, of course, talking mushrooms. So far this year I have collected the glorious cep, the penny bun and the slippery Jack, the shaggy ink cap, and parasol, the Caesare or Orange,and the giant puffball but I have never found the Chanterelle, I know they are about as an elderly neighbour regularly finds them in my woods but he won’t divulge his secret successful places so I will have to keep searching. I’ve been collecting now for over twenty years, I err on the side of caution and always get rid of any I am unsure of.

We are hosting a Honey Festival on Thursday 26 October from 2-5 pm

There will be experienced beekeepers that you can put your questions to, a display of different local honeys to taste and plenty to buy. There will be a demonstration of honey harvesting and an explanation of different hives and bee keeping equipment. Perhaps also a chance to sign up to a beekeeping course for next year.

It is a friendly afternoon of people interested in bees, what bees do, how bees’ lives interact with ours and everyone is welcome.
There will be tea/coffee and cake served.
