Well, I have a new problem. A Starling keeps getting into the greenhouse via the auto-opening windows and demolishing my tomatoes. I'm going to have to net over the top of the greenhouse; very annoyin ...

I do love chanterelles. Never been fortunate enough to forage them but occasionally, I do buy them if they don't look too past their prime.
