Just got back from a little holiday where I saw these Milkcaps in a Spanish market selling for 35 euros a kilo – yikes! That is more expensive than cepes here in France. This lot almost escaped me as they were well hidden in the long grass which is currently in desperate need of cutting.
Must have been a lot of rain while we were gone as the mushrooms are out in force and the beetroot has finally fattened up a bit. The veggie plot is looking a bit sad but my remaining squashes are looking good and almost ready to pick. Hope I’m not saying ‘sick of squash’ before spring. The calendula are still in flower so another batch of balm on the cards and a gigantic pot of veggie soup should be on the go by the weekend – and I mean gigantic!
