    That's not a beer can so I can't tell how big the mushroom is :)

    Well, this isn't a beer can either, but I understand that these long black stems, with numbers on them, can be found with them frequently. So I used one for size reference. 20190513_133620.jpg

    What are the greens? At first I thought that they were ramps but no red/purple stem or white bulb.

    Those are indeed ramps. I am happy with the leaves and it is a more conservative approach to sustainable harvest. They are slow growers/reproducers. The leaves are my favorite part to cook with.

    Schaumburg area never really hit prime growing conditions yet. They are still out there and growing. I'd say atleast another week.
