Place to post the mixed bag of summer mushrooms. Was out for a hike with the boys and found some young just starting to grow Reishi mushrooms look to be ganoderma tsugae growing off hemlock. Happy Hunting!!
Barnacle that is Shang or American ginseng my true love of the woods well 2nd to whitetail lol.
Thxs trahn008 u gave me some great info on starting my own morel beds come to find out I don't need um had 150 pop up 30 ft from my house this yr. I'm having a great moreI season I'm up to 1378 that I've harvested n still going.
Back to summer shroomin black trumpets should b Poppin hear in a week or two can't wait.
Barnacle, that is a Reishi looks to be Ganoderma Tsugae because it's growing on hemlock (Tsugae is hemlock in latin) if it was growing on hardwood it would be Ganodera Lucidum. I like to harvest them when they mature and make a medical tea with them. Happy Hunting!!
Thanks you guys, I had been wondering if there was something else to forage for after morels are done. From what I just read (google) the trumpets look like a great option for a complete novice like myself.
Barnacle follow along I'll be posting up all summer long as they fruit. Many good mushrooms to be had over the summer and fall. Have eaten over 200 wild mushrooms.. I have about 10 I really like to target and over half of those are in the summer.
Beatnik88 how do you like the chickens.. not a big fan of them, just to mild for me, but a nice filler for soups.
I have yet to try one honestly. I only started mushroom hunting a few years ago and up to this point I've only harvested morels, chanterelles, and oysters. This is the first year I'll be looking for the others.
