A Fur Hat Raccoon, & an Autumnal Walk in the Park with Monty

I took Monty for a walk in the park early last Sunday morning.


The weather was getting cold, but I wore a wool sweater, wool socks, and gloves and was ready for the cool of the morning. I also wore pants and shoes (of course).


It was good and he had a run about.


As we got down towards the valley entrance, I thought I saw a fur hat laying on the ground. I realized quickly that it was a raccoon, and on closer examination - a living breathing, albeit unconscious or sleeping raccoon. It was a juvenile. Monty sniffed at it but kept his distance, heckles raised. Using a stick, I gently prodded it - thinking it had simply overslept (I am not a trained biologist specializing in the sleep habits of juvenile raccoons). It didn't even blink. It just kept on breathing, heaving its chest every few seconds.


I figured it had either fallen from the tall willow tree above or was sick (or hungover - Saturday night was behind us). I called Toronto Animal Services and 45 minutes later a gruff fellow arrived, manhandled the unresponsive raccoon into a cage and left. I hope that the raccoon got better.


I mused on this for a few minutes and wandered about near the tree line. I then stumbled about my mushroom patch (where several dead tree stumps lay submerged beneath the grass on the verge by the valley - saprophytic mushrooms feast on rotting wood). I found only a single stinkhorn beginning to emerge from its egg.


The Heal-All (Prunella vulgaris) seems pretty tenacious stuff. I've eaten it. It is bitter and strange tasting. Anti-viral and anti-lots of bad stuff, apparently.


In a mini chipmunk hole I found a mini-mushroom beginning to grow. Even chipmunks enjoy mushrooms.

Cheers - hope you're enjoying the cooler weather! My favourite season is upon us - Autumn.

Agaricus arvensis (Horse Mushroom)


The Horse Mushroom (Agaricus arvensis) is a sought-after mushroom related to the button mushrooms that you buy at the supermarket.


On Sunday, I collected a couple of pounds worth growing by a dead tree trunk in a park nearby as I was walking about the neighbourhood with a sleeping baby in his stroller.


Gilled. Big. Pleasant smell. It is one of the 'most delicious edible mushrooms'.


Fry 'em up. Tempura them. Put into soups.


Have with a T-Bone steak.


Enjoy with a Porterhouse steak.


A Rib-Eye steak would accompany some sauted mushrooms well.


And a nice bottle of red wine, methinks.


Anyway. This is my first big find of edible mushrooms this year.


I am hoping to bump into a stump covered in Oyster mushrooms sometime.


I will keep my eyes peeled.


And once I cook a few of these up, I'll report on them.

Don't worry. I've checked and rechecked. I've asked the advice of 2 independent experts who both agree. I have also have my Roger Philips' Mushrooms textbook on my side.

Mungo Says don't ever eat fungus unless you have 100% identified them. Many mushrooms have visual analogues that can be mildy poisonous to deadly poisonous.

Upcoming Bushcraft Posts - And Wot I 'ave Been Up To

We've been tidying up the house over the last few weeks, and I'm concentrating on the basement where I store all my camping equipment. It is time for some kit admin, and organization.

I will show photos soon, but I have been making some alcohol stoves & built some simple but effective pot stands out of galvanized steel mesh.

My first attempt at net making is going really well! I am using cotton string for now, but I could use some nylon monofilament and give gill netting a try sometime. I would love to try cast netting, but I wouldn't make one, I would buy one instead...

I would use them where legal... of course.

Finally, I have a whole bunch of flowers that I whittled of which I intend to take photos.

Too tired tonight.

Go easy,

Mungo
