After concerns about a drought earlier in the year, the summer of 2021 has been exceptionally wet, especially good weather for wild mushrooms.

Thanks to Alethea Yates for snapping some of Bedford’s mycological wonders while walking around town.

CAUTION: How can you tell the difference between an edible wild mushroom and a poisonous one? Unless you are very experienced in mushroom identification, you can’t!!  It is NEVER safe to eat a wild mushroom unless a mushroom identification expert says so.  Poison.org
