Time for agaricus

When the dry spell continues and continues
 and all mushroomers long for rain,
cemeteries are the place to go.
There, wise gardeners regularly water the grounds.
And there, one might find e.g. various Agaricus.

 

Agaricus arvensis. Edible.
A lesson from last year was how the rings here “pull upwards”.

 Agaricus bernardii. Edible, but not normally eaten in Norway because of the fishy smell.
This year, I ate them for the first time when I found these choice babies.
The verdict? I will eat them again.
 
Note how the ring “pulls downwards” in an A. bernardii.
