Shrooms

Ailz put an app on my phone which allows me to identify fungi. It's a very cautious app and only tells me that certain specimens are "reported to be edible" instead of assuring me that they are- which I understand but deplore. I went the rounds yesterday, pointing and clicking- and found quite a few different species. Dare I pick the parasols in the top field which are "reportedly edible" but closely resemble another species that is likely to kill me on the spot? I still haven't made up my mind on that one. I was hoping for magic mushrooms but no go. A friend picked some on our land a week or two back and left them lying on the kitchen counter- sad, weedy little things- and I ate them when no-one was looking. It was a very small dose- and the results were only mildly interesting...
