UK Liberty Caps out early
    #2931385 - 07/27/04 05:20 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

With all this rain we've been having, I thought I would check for Liberty Caps, and found loads of brown fresh sticky ones. This is the earlest I have ever found them in 20 years of picking. Here are a couple of photos taken yesterday, 26th July! Happy hunting.

take it from me, the top ones are the finest 100% fresh new Liberty caps. I actually expected to find them this early as i've seen lots of fungi, that I normally see when i'm picking, on lawns in the park etc and that got me thinking, hmm i wonder...

The top ones are definately fresh libs Shirl. They turn cream when they dry out a bit due to sun / wind.

Hey Lou!  :smile: Where you been hiding??? Good to see you on the board again!

I was out today looking for libs in a nearby field that I had recommended but didn't find anything apart from Calvatia gigantea (giant puffball) and a shit load of blackberries so it looks like I'm making blackberry and apple crumble with custard tonight! :laugh:

I'll have to check my regular patches in Derbyshire and the Peaks methinks!

Random fungi have started growing in my lawn, so I was thinking that maybe I should go hunting soon...
Have you guys seen that website which lists hunting grounds around the UK? I'll try to find the URL if you like...
There's a huge golf course a minute's walk from my house, I might have a look tomorrow morning. I'm not sure if it'll be any good though, do they put weedkillers etc on the grass? Well, it's worth a look, being so close.

If your on about http://members.lycos.co.uk/shroommap/ it's a waste of time IMO. I've checked a field mentioned for the past 4 years and haven't found ANY fungi, never mind Psilocybes.
