Fall Fungus, by the Wissahickon Creek

Ever since Elizabeth and Hana each made their posts about foraging last summer, I have been unable to turn off the part of my brain that notices interesting mushrooms.  This one I found poking out of some leaves along Philadelphia’s Forbidden Drive.  I have no earthly idea whether it is edible.  But I wouldn’t.

Manayunk StrEAT Food Festival, 2013

Manayunk StrEAT Food Festival

It’s been a little while since I’ve made a post that’s primarily an excuse to show you photos. But this past Saturday was the Manayunk StrEAT Food Festival. And excavating my camera and a couple of rolls of last year’s unexposed film from a growing layer of domestic sediment (and in the process, hopelessly disturbing the nascent fossil record that is my house) I decided to head down there to see what’s what.
