Old field!!!
    #347683 - 06/24/01 12:50 AM (15 years, 7 months ago)

I took a drive up North yesterday to check out a field I used to pick in. This field, even in the spring, had some liberty caps, blue ringers and baeocystis in it! I haven't visited it in about 8 years.
Guess what....Those SOBs built a Texaco with a fucking Taco Bell inside it right on top of MY patches of gold! I was pissed, even though it's been really dry and wouldn't have produced anyway. But still, why the hell do they keep building shit on land that should be considered sacred, even by the assholes that had the money to build?
Stay cool!-Levi7.

That's gotta suck. If they only knew, they wouldn't think about building on it.Maybe erect a small mushroom shrine.The way I look at it, all land is sacred, especially something that holds something magical like that.
They're developing around my area, like crazy also. I use to live out in the country.When you went outside at night it was dark.Slowly the city has moved out to me. Now when you go out, the sky has an orange glow on the horizon, cause they put up those HPS lights every damn where.Nothing against HPS lights, they can sure produce some sweet buds, but they should leave 'em inside, where they do the most good(he, he).

A Taco Bell. Hmmm....... Isn't that a Mexican phone company?

Hey Levi,

A good example of the loss ofmagic mushrooms in 80% of all new lawns in the Seattle area which use to produce mass quatities of blue ringers is due to the disappearance of pastures south of the city of Seattle to Renton-Aubuirn area.. A good example is South Center Shopping Malls and all of the buildings south of 152 street from Tukwilla to Kent and Auburn along the West Valley Haighway. The pastures keep disappearing for the building of one story non-poluting buildings both industrial and commercial office buildings, still put in fresh lawns but the pastures where most of the lawn (sod) fertilizers were coming from are no longer there.

However the blue ringer is rare in the field and P. baeocystis is the rarest in a pasture.

Meaning you could find one or two specimensof those two rare species to every two to three hundred thousand liberty caps.

Thats how rare those two shrooms are in a pasture.

But in a man made environment. Thats a different story.,

Adn no Liberty caps are rare as hell in the spring. One in a million most likely.

I found 18 in a lawn around May 22, 1979 at south center. ANd never again there in the same place. Also inthe fall from 1987-1981, several lawns produced little one to two inch high liberty caps because that was always the height of the grass in which they grew due to perpetual lawn care by the Evergreen Tree Service people.

In Oregon they also are common in pastures from August through December and sometimes into the first few weeks of January but not in abundance.

However in the coastal regions of Oregon liberty caps can be picked from golf course lawns in the fall because they are well manicured and kept on a regular basis.

In 1979 to 1981, Woodland lawn in the Seattle public arboretum was home to P. semilanceata each fall for a few years. Outside of that, they are not found hardly ever on lawns.

In England they are common on lawns with tall rank grasses and along side roadways in the country and in many public parks, but not so in AMerica.

The latrgest shroom collection came form the Freeway pPark in Down town Seattle in 1976 after the park opened in September of that year. Every bed box with steer-co woodchip mulch and every lawn (5 1/2 acres) with fresh laid sod, was wall to wall with five varieities of psilocybian mushrooms. I was the first to find them there and collect them there. And for the first two years , no one but me knew they were there. Byt the third year the ivy started to overgrow everything and they didn't remulch the park and eventually the ivy took over and very few magic shrooms have ever grown there since.

But P. semilanceata is a fall-autumn mushroom. I get so many people who claim they pick liberty caps all year and that is BS.

Anyway have a shroomy day,

mj

Have a shroomy day and may all of your days be shroomy.

I'm saying what I knew then was that I was picking Liberty caps. I'm not saying I knew they were Ps. semilanceata, as no one at the time knew the Latin names. I do know, however, that I picked a magic mushroom and we all called them Liberty caps, Blue ringers and Black tops(I believe was Ps. baeocystis).
Stay cool!-Levi7.

the latin names??? are you serious?? Levi, no offense but i thought you picked some of these mushrooms recently?? If you found specimens of libs, ringers and baeos in the same FIELD in mid june and didnt bother to take pictures that insanity. No offense but i think you are either full of shit or dont know what you picked. I live in the pac northwest and have actually myself been into a field that produces copious amounts of liberty caps and subfimentaria from sept-dec on 2 seperate occasions this month just for the hell of it and have found nothing but corpohilla (sp). So yea whats the deal here???

It totally sucks.... I too was amazed when i arrived to the villages where i use to hunt around for mushrooms, and one of the best fields had been turned into a sugar cane planting site... I felt like a needle on my heart

No Cardboard, I didn't find those mushrooms recently. The last time I visited that field was in 1994. At that time, I knew nothing about mushrooms. I lived in Blaine WA for a few years and some guys there took me out and showed me what to hunt for. They called them Liberty caps, Blue ringers and Black tops. I moved to South Carolina in 1994. Then in 1996, I moved back to my home town in Missouri. In 1999, I started doing some serious studying, because I planned to move back to Washington in 2000. So I moved back here to Shelton, not Blaine last April. I hunted all spring and found nothing until October 2000, when I found Ps. stuntzii and Ps. cyanescens. I didn't have a camera or a scanner and didn't even know how to post pics until a few weeks ago.
OK, I went to Vancouver B.C. a few days ago and on my way back, I took a drive around Birch Bay where I used to pick the mushrooms back in 93-94. You're from Bellinham, right. Well, behind that Outlet mall north of Ferndale, there was a field that those shrooms grew in. If you go there now, you'll see a Texaco(I think) with Taco Bell built into it. I knew nothing would be growing there because it hasn't rained in awhile. I was just showing my wife some spots I used to find them in. Also, I used to pick in fields down Kickerville that now have houses and trailers on them.
Are you satisfied?!!!!
I didn't tak offense, but give me the benefit of the doubt. I don't claim to have found mushrooms that I didn't find.
Stay cool, bro!-Levi7.

OKay i guess this is my bad, being the impatiant bastard i am i didnt read the original post very well. I thought you had said you checked your field a few days ago and at that point found all those species. I dont think its impossible to find liberty caps in the spring, its just HIGHLY unlikely which everyone will agree with, so seeing a post which i thought said you had found baeos, ringers and libs all in the same field at this time of year made me a little crazy because i think that WOULD be impossible. I am not from bellingham but anacortes and have never tried to hunt any fields in the bellingham area as it would be pointless with the very fertile skagit valley located closer to me. Sorry for jumping the gun on that one but it just blew my mind..
