Thanks, I will try to get some. I haven't tried to find oysters yet. Morels and chanterelles are the only types I have harvested to this point. I did take an old lions mane off a beech tree in feb. I am just starting to hunt for more types. Morels were the only ones I hunted until last year when I found a large patch of chanterelles and ask a friend if they were edible. Well he got me interested in other types that were edible and easy to identify. But he wasn't much help on location or timing. So over the winter I found this forum and went back in the archives and really learned a lot about timing and habitat. I thought I knew everything I needed to know about morels from hunting for over 50 years but I have really learned a lot more from this forum.Now I am really anxious to get out and try it out.(medal conduit) EMT conduit 3/4 inch works great. Works for oyster mushrooms also.
Thanks, if I can't get it down will it spread to other trees in the area.Some advise when you harvest that chaga. Knock the black off and cube it up as soon as you harvest. If you let it sit around it will dry up and be very hard to cut up. A good sharp knife with a good spine does the job.
