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!!

I was walking the other afternoon, central PA, back in an old growth hemlock forest and saw A LOT of these guys, at various stages of development. Some pins, others fully mature fans.

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.

Excited for black trumpets this year as well. I randomly stumbled on a patch of about 4-5 lbs last year but let them go bad due to a custody battle taking up my time.

Hoblershang I have tried to eat pheasant backs many different ways but just can't get a taste for them. Taste like watermelon rind to me.

Nice mycelium run on that stump could be turkey tail starting or chicken don't see any yellow yet, but time will tell.
