good candy

This is my kind of gift for Valentine's Day. I am sad now because nobody gave any to me. If I had some, I wouldn't be blogging right now. I'd be lying on the floor, listening to loud music and watching the fibers in the carpet crawl around like tiny worms.

Just damn! Back in the 70s, I picked grocery bags full of those mushrooms every time it rained in the summer. I even found some once on New Year's Eve. I have not seen any growing wild for more than 25 years. Somebody told me that farmers use cow feed that kills the spores now. That's a crying shame.

Those mushrooms make GREAT tea, and probably good candy, too.


Those mushrooms still grow wild in certain places. In fact, where I live now we find them quite often. I've never tried them myself but my husband tells some interesting stories about them.

It's a few years too since I had magic mushrooms but they still growing around here in the Autumn especially on peaty soil with close cropped (or mown) grass. I'm sorry to hear that you didn't get any for Valentine's. I hope you're luckier for presents tomorrow. It is your birthday isn't it? Have a good one.
