Strange Fungi


These fungi I found in the vegetable garden.

Do you know this one?

Mushroom or toadstool?

There is no clear distinction between mushrooms and toadstools. Toadstool is a common but vague term for some kinds of mushroom, usually a poisonous or inedible one. Toads were once thought to be very poisonous, but ‘toadstool’ is said to come from the German tod-stuhl, meaning death-chair – referring to the the fatal effects of mushroom poisoning, and to the shape of the fruiting body.

Fungi are more closely related to animals than to plants – for example, they are mainly composed of chitin, which forms the exoskeleton (covering) of insects and other arthropods. However, they are now considered distinct enough to warrant their own major grouping – the fungi kingdom.

  1. Cool sampioene. Ek het nog altyd ‘n paddastoel en ‘n sampioen as sinonieme gesien. Ek volstaan ook daarby dat jy nie een kon omskop nie, omdat daar ‘n dwergie, kabouter of feetjie in woon. As jy sampioene wil eet, gaan koop dit liefs in ‘n winkel.

    1. Hier is daar nogal heelwat mense wat aan bo-natuurlike kragte en elemente glo. Een daarvan is die paddastoele wat met tye welig groei. Hul gebruik dit vir hul brousels en dan is daar die ouens wat die demone beveg deur die paddastoele te vernietig.
      Ek sal beslis nie dit sommer omskop nie dis so mooi. Wat dan van kabouterjies en feetjies? Hul kan nie almal in my tuin kom bly nie.

    1. Hier is nogal n goeie verskeidenheid paddastoele! Hierdie een is nogal vreemd. Hul is almal maar giftig. Die ouens hou ook daarvan om die goed stukkend te slaan en te vernietig
