Well not exactly, this fine crop has sprung up on the roots of an old pine tree we cut down a few years ago.
Unfortunately I never learned to tell the difference between what's edible and what's not, which is a skill I'd like to learn. A German colleague tells me it's very easy, he goes out into the woods this time of year and I recall the market in Sete a few years ago with the most amazing variety and quantity all of which had been gathered in the nearby woods.
