Good go Geo til they start popping again. Cya later.Last day for me. Found 45 or so mostly under dead apples. All in proven territory but I found some new trees. Mushrooms were nice, partial dried, easy to deal with. Had some for supper along side a rib eye.Tomorrow a barbecue in the woods for the season finale. see you next year.
That's a great score! Congrats!!Most of what I found was in moss, as usual. The key thing for trumpets (besides the moss) is that they hate leaf litter. They like bare ground with extensive moss and lots of oak trees.
I'm sun-drying the trumpets right now. I estimate that I picked 5 lbs., which is just insane by my standards. I usually come home with 5 trumpets, not 5 lbs.
I think I just found a cute group of morals for the first time at the bottom of an oak tree. They are huge. Or maybe they are something else. I am new to the mushroom community. I study science in biology as well as being a violinist for most of my life and also taught school. But science and the micro science and even the larger picture always fascinate me.Grass ready to be cut in Albany! Will be checking some micro climates down in the Hudson river Valley. Fingers crossed
Very much so.Heavy snow over the winter, seriously warm weather for the past week, now a soaking rain - anyone else thinking this is going to be bumper year for our little buddies? Hudson Valley, at least.
