I recycle bread bags.... and am now at two bags a day.
They are sneaky, as the Mushrooms, very white, but coming in different shapes, are hidden under all types of things : leaves, soil, dig house, tree limbs, prickly vines, trash cans, etc. Still they are usually harmless. I have a list and photos of dangerous ones.
The toad stools are Red or orange and the one I touch caused a days worth of pain on my right hand.
I use a bread loaf bag to protect my hand & glove. But still filled two big loaf bags yesterday afternoon. So the total number of filled bags came to four. That is a lot of these things. And I discovered at least 5 different types.
Whats odd is yesterday's gathering was the most in one day so far this year.
I am blaming the increase on the rain that flows into yard from three different northern points. From the road, which brings the largest amount of Trash! From my neighbors yard uphill. I have laid wx4s down along the fence line which helps keep out larger items.
But the broken glass and other items just flow over the 2x4s.
The third flow is from my uphill neighbors yard above my large back yard. Thats because for decades people living in this area have burned their trash in open burn piles since the 1800s here.
I find cans broken glass of all types, metal and plastic. I not only hunt mushrooms, I hunt for storm trash from the burn piles from homes higher up the hill. Welcome to the past & the present garbage of human beinstead.
Living rural is not just surrounded by nature. We are surrounded by human detritus.
sigh! I have to be vigilant to protect Charlie and myself.
