I finally found another area with trumpets. Not as many as Barnacle but enough for a skillet of potatoes, onions, eggs and trumpets for breakfast.
I also found these today. I will give a guess on them, the first picture I think is a type of lactarius, 3rd picture is jelly babies, 4th picture is old man of the woods, and the last picture I have no idea.
Thanks , that’s not all from one outing though. It’s my whole season so far roughly 2 weeks, although the majority is from this week. I was fortunate last year to find dozens of patches. They were dried up and moldy but at least I knew where I could find them!
Trahn, I am working on some submissions to the bolete study. I’m glad you started that thread!
Kicker love those pics. Keep them coming!
Hi, all.....my first post here. I think these are Fuzzy Foot ( Paxillus atrotomentosus ). Please don't eat them; refer to page 92 of Bill Russell's Field Guide to Wild Mushrooms of PA and the Mid-Atlantic.
Dan thanks 4 the heads up. I don't eat any mushrooms I'm not 100% sure of.
Perhaps this website wouldn't be spammed so much if they didn't have 1000 ads on here. Those things are portals for idiots...
Found a large area of chants this morning. Most were buggy but saved enough for a meal.
Found a few big ones tonight just before dark. Check out this one that has another type of mushroom growing or fused right into it. I didn't notice it until I got home Bc it was so dark. Have to look these suckers over good! Wouldn't want to eat some random mushrooms accidentally.
After five years of searching I finally found my trumpets!
Congrats beat! Must have felt good. I bet you start finding them all over now. That's how it was for me last year. I scored big today, my biggest trumpet haul ever! I had to go back to my car and empty my basket 4 times. I'm only halfway through dehydrating that table full of trumpets from the other day. The glass jars is what I've got done so far. Seems like things are going to slow down soon though many were shriveled up today. Found a few hedgehogs also. Any suggestions on eating the lobster mushrooms?
Starting to find some fresh oysters again. Chickens and oysters are the only ones my wife likes, but she does drink the reishi tea and we are making some reishi tincture right now. Barnacle I can't find the one in the center of your basket in the top picture above. Is it edible. lol
I guess we are to assume that Morels.com is taking a three-day weekend here and are letting the spam run rampant...
Went out for 20-30 minutes yesterday and found nothing but a few oysters that hadn't gotten chewed up. We haven't had as much rain as out east, but other than oysters here and there, I haven't seen anything in my area in W. PA. Not that I've had much time to look, but even driving by places I've seen stuff this time of year before.
Another good but tough day on a steep hillside. Some chant and tons of trumpets.
Went for a bike and hike today
Took the beagle for a walk this evening and found a chicken and these white ones that look like a puffball but they were kind of depressed on the top. The bottom picture is the bottom of the mushroom. Any ideas.
Went to my golden chanterelles spot that I have ignored for at least a month now. It’s a huge producer of the Golden’s and sure enough they were everywhere. Many had soft stems so I new they were worm riddled. Oh well, I figured I’d take a walk and see if anything else might be around. This is only my second year at this area but I’ve searched the area dozens of times last season never finding anything other than the Golden’s. TODAY HOWEVER, the mother load of mature smooth chants. Patch after patch of them also some really nice lobsters and old man of the forests. I forgot my phone but will get pics tomorrow. I only had time to pick a basket full. They all that I took were worm free. Those 2 jars have 6-7 lbs of trumpets squeezed into them. Unfortunately carrying that much weight in a mesh bag really beat them so I just dried them all to save them. Lesson learned.
Nice haul, barnacle.
I'm going out tomorrow morning early in Central OH. to the spot that has been producing huge numbers of Chanterelles for me. This is the best year in 4-5 it seems, here.
Hope they (administrators) get the hacker/spam/chinese problem cleared up.
