That time of year

Yeah, baby, it is Grifola frondosa time. This cluster is about the same size as a basket ball, it weighed about 20 lbs. In all I have found about 45 lbs of the ole' hen of the woods this fall, good year, and all the asians in my lab have been quite happy with the fungal gift baskets I left on their benches. I have alot dried now too. This mushroom has great flavor, but also great texture. It would be great in a vegetarian shepard's pie

A couple days later I found Laetiporus sulphereus and Lartiporus persicinius. I made my self up quite a little sautee. The differences in the textures and flavors was exquiste.

Just for a little flavor here are a couple of other pictures of mushrooms that are neither edible or medicinal... I think it is interesting that these are the same species. The first one (with my dogs nose in it for scale) was growing in the woods under brush, and the second one was growing in a open, well lit lawn. You see the same kind of thing in oysters too. I took the sporocarps from the second picture with into the basement and watched them glow. The species is Omphalotus olearius.

Listen! Do you smell something?

I got a wild culture of maitake a week ago.  I'm going to make some dowel plugs and hit up around 10 or so stumps around the neighborhood park. :smile:
