I'm having a little fungal love going on at the moment...it all began with the novelty idea of taking one old paperback, sowing some fungal spores and then watch the little shrooms grow.....it seemed especially satisfying when it was a trashy upon cheesiest "chick lit" book that was used! ( which every 3 years or so I find impossible to resist!)
Alas....these 3 crackers grew and then......nothing! Stuart made the valid point that while it had been fascinating and fun watching them grow, the averaging cost of one mushroom = £4.00 (£12.00 for the kit) and makes these probably the most expensive mushrooms around!....perhaps I should try an ebay auction.."exotic trashy novelty mushroom variety ... 3 of a kind!".....
Anyhoos....to continue the fungal love, if you haven't experienced Mr Finch's exquisite work before , it's my pleasure to hand you over to some of his magnificent mushrooms...which actually will be even more expensive than mine...but more than worth it! :)
Mister Finch's website is here
And his shop is here! I urge you to check out his work...it is quite incredible!
And to end can I just say how kind I have been in sparing you from the only joke I know (and have ever been able to remember)....you know..the one about the mushroom at the party....he was a really funghi......
