Our summers are usually so void of fungal life it’s exciting when something unexpectedly pops up. The cold weather always seems so far away at this time of year.

These little guys have been coming up all over my tomato bed with the recent rains. I had never seen them before this observation, even in my paddocks (where the manure came from).

Lucky you :o)

Summer fungi in Australia…a rare but wonderful thing! Lovely photograph. I’m sure you’re counting down the days to Autumn, when the fungi come out of hibernation…I can’t wait :D


Thanks :)
