Re: mushrooms, where are thy?

I'd say find someone who's familiar with the local fungi,and see if they can find the time to drag you along on a forage. Last autumn I was on vacation in the Ardennes,and I brought a pretty decent fieldguide with me. Once I was in the middle of mushroom central doubt rose...they look so much alike....

Re: galvanised herbs container

Thanks,Zoe.
This is not all that hard to make,I'm just lucky to have access to awesome professional tools and machines at my job.
