MORE MUSHROOMS–ON THE GROUND HERE in the garden, and on the blog, too. Apparently we aren’t the only ones who noticed what all the rains have brought. NPR’s “Science Friday” recently re-ran a video on mushroom basics with an expert from the New York Botanical Garden to mark what feels like the year of the mushroom in the Northeast, as I mentioned the other day. [Update: The video no longer embeds well here, so see it at this link instead.] (Thanks to longtime A Way to Garden reader Johanna for the tipoff to this fascinating fungi video.)

fascinating fungus: a mushroom update
WITH ULTRA-MOIST CONDITIONS this summer-into-fall, I have to say the thing doing the best in the garden are the mushrooms. One odd-looking fungus after another..
So pleased to have watched this.
A little notice came up at the end of the video with a code for embedding it in our own sites.
I would quite like to do that but don’t know what the ethics / conventions are. If it were a photo, I couldn’t simply put a copy on Loose and Leafy – but videos don’t seem to be the same.
Enlightenment on this would be much appreciated!
Fine to use the video, Lucy — I got the embed code from the Science Friday site and they encourage sharing. You can go there and confirm their approval for yourself and grab the code if you prefer. The link is in the post.
this is great, thanks so much!
This is a great beginner’s video. I am so fascinated with fungi and want to learn more so that I can identify them better. This has been very helpful. Thanks for sharing!
Nice to see you, Karin. I’m fascinated, too, by fungi and also nowadays by insects and such. So many thing I just never took careful notice of before. but now I stop and look.
I LOVE THAT VIDEO!!! Margaret, I too am fascinated by insects and the smaller creatures on this beautiful planet. Thanks for the video. You brightened an otherwise dull Sunday morning at work. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, me too, Kakie. So glad you enjoyed it! Hope to see you again soon.
