Fall is here and we finally got enough rain to kick off the fall mushroom season. Among the many foragable fungi available in the fall, my favorite are coral mushrooms. Not only are corals super easy to identify, even for the novice mushroom hunter, but they are downright beautiful and oh, so good to eat.

Fall has finally arrived in our neck of the woods and the mild sunny days are punctuated by clear blue skies and a parade of technicolor foliage. But for most gardeners, fall usually means that the garden is beginning to look a little rough around the edges. Because our vegetable and herb gardens surround the house the last thing we want is to let things get too ragged looking. Over the years we have grown various perennials around the perimeter of the garden in an attempt to screen and draw attention away from the less attractive bits. Of the many varieties we’ve grown, our fall favorite is a lusty and beautiful sedum that is appropriately named “Autumn Joy”.
