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
Veronica them are some cool pics.I layed off the oysters little bit my wife says they hurt your stomach but they don't mess with my mind since I'm jonesing I'm going to have to get out.I've never harvest any velvet foot still somewhat new not sure if I want to chance it yet probably won't. Hope you have a good Christmas and a happy new year a bag full of shrooms!
it's a very easy shroom the hunt. the best place is river bottoms or wherever there r Elms that's where I found most of mine. I believe that's the one my book says there are no look alikes in Missouri.is there any more information you need
