summer mushrooms..... who picks and what
I totally agree...I'll take oysters, chanterelles or hedgehogs over morels any day. They're around longer and much easier to find.
I have some large elm logs in the woods next to my house that I’ve been getting oysters from for a few weeks now. I’ve been watering it to keep them growing. I think like the morel season, it’s too dry for them to produce without added moisture right now. I actually much prefer oysters over morels.
When will start finding some good stuff: chanterelles, hedgehogs, oysters, chickens, hens?
I had some mushrooms pop up in my strawberries that looked like honey mushrooms, but I don't eat those.
I can't wait to find some fresh oysters!
Interesting just figured it was a shroom of fungus of some sort cause they only lasted a couple days before drying out and curling up. Guess that’s why I couldn’t find anything in my mushroom book about it.
That’s monotropa uniflora, it’s actually a plant
Hit the jackpot this week two days ago. Got a whole year supply. I hit the local cemetary and got a lot of vase puffballs, today got two, about 6 inches from some bodys yard right off the road. about ten days ago got three about 4-5 inches. Probably have two and a half gallon bags frozen. To process cut into slices as close to 1/4 inch and fry in light olive oil 30 seconds per side, put them on a cookie sheet and freeze, then bag them up. Great with bear or venison, stroganoffs or whatever. They taste just like those white ones in stores.
