    I don't think I've seen such an abundance of mushrooms in years. They're everywhere!

    Anyone else fields coming down with mushrooms?

    must get looking--when is best time.to search fields? early morning?

    Same here.
    Even fields just reseeded this year have mushrooms.

    It's an exceptional year on them.

    It's a sign of healthy soil.

    Only place i have them is on a spot that cattle trampled back to just bare clay during the drought.

    Best crop in years.

    Yes, noticed them scattered around this evening. Must be the wet after the heat!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,922 ✭✭✭ giveitholly


    Seen them in a field this evening that I never saw them in before


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,015 ✭✭✭ L1985


    It's weird here as we are having them in fields we never had them and they aren't in fields they usually are. One field was insane with the amount-we have some happy neighbours now as well! Wouldn't have a hope in getting through them ourselves.

    None here (Wicklow), but then ground is as dry as a bone.


  • Registered Users Posts: 721 ✭✭✭ Pixelbastardo


    Magic?

    Same here, seeing them in fields that never had them before.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,660 ✭✭✭ White Clover


    A good few mushrooms around this evening. They're popping up everywhere and growing like.........well, mushrooms!

    Yup. Got a few here too. Must give a good look tomorrow


  • Registered Users Posts: 236 ✭✭ rubbledoubledo


    Any one come across mushrooms. They are out already. Must head off in the morning to look. See them from the motorway yesterday evening near Roscrea. With the rain now and ground is warm ideal

    Lovely, I may never eat a mushroom again!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,577 ✭✭✭ farawaygrass


    Was picking them early last week. Was thinking it was very early for them


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,807 ✭✭✭ 6541


    I associate mushrooms with Autumn, I note loads of Autumn berries out as well.


  • Registered Users Posts: 247 ✭✭ El Vino


    Any one spotted any this year so far? Nothing much in this part of Tipp. Might be a little early I guess.


  • Registered Users Posts: 236 ✭✭ rubbledoubledo


    No they were out in places a month ago. I got nothing myself yet. See them from the motorway just before the Roscrea slip road. That was early ok but this is the time for them now


  • Registered Users Posts: 235 ✭✭ patspost


    I haven’t seen any mushrooms yet this year.
    Have others seen them?

    Is it too late?
    I was looking in S Galway.

    I got the mastitis and maggots but no shaggin mushrooms.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11 dodie


    I have been on the lookout for field mushrooms this year 2020 but nothing. Am I too early. When do you start looking?
    Just read the dates on previous posts. We’re they really around in July. Oh well. I thought October ��

    Thread is bringing back childhood memories of shopping bags full of collected mushrooms going on to a frying pan with butter and pepper.

    Happy days.
