Tom’s off the mower for a while yet until *another* part is ordered. With all this rain, including almost 1″ last night and more falling now, I suppose this isn’t such a bad thing for the mower, the grass…and the mushrooms. The amanita mushrooms (the toadstools) are HUGE. Puffballs too are looking like so many lost softballs (both Chicago-sized and smaller) that can be seen from the house hundreds of feet away.
But the good news? It’s too early for porcini mushrooms, and I am hoping the disabled mower lasts long enough for me to make a good harvest!
