Some fresh oysters , since right before turkey day they have been coming out ..or up.
I think they will persist for another week at least from what I see in the forecast.

They make a fine soup
Happy holidays and see ya next year

No velvets for me I would prolly gag. Temps not below 25 for weeks which works well for winter growth of oyster 'mushrooms. We have had many days with higher humidity and dewpoints, as well as lots of foggy mornings.

The oyster's are opportunistic IMo , and the lack of bugs, and lack of their enemy the yellow slime mold gives them a definite opportunity to grow and sporulate

I am seeing mushrooms on 30 to 40 percent of the willow's by the local river here pretty much
