A mushroom I mean chestnut basket
He’d warned me already we were five days too early, and the mushrooms we kept smelling were underground and still spores.

No mushrooms, but lots of chestnuts, but no mushrooms
So we changed our tack and switched focus to chestnuts, foraging two half-loaded baskets between us, out of the mouths of boars.

(Who are real pigs by the way.)
