  1. Today
  2. Thank you Johny, I will follow your recepy;)
  3. Yesterday
  4. Lobsters are always dirty. Use a soft bristle too brush and running water to clean them. It is rare for me to find one that does not need to have a bit of soft mushy meat cut away. Cut them up, fry them in butter with a wee bit of salt. Use them in any recipe that calls for mushrooms.
  5. Im gonna go ahead and call this tylopilus plumbeoviolaceus. Fits quit nicely imo.
  6. I live in Aurora, CO. I found these growing next to the creepy black mushrooms (see previous post). They were found under some lilac bushes and in red mulch.
  7. I live in Aurora, Colorado. I found these guys growing under a lilac bush and in red mulch. Any ideas?
  8. If you cut the cap from the stem and leave it on a piece of tin foil, the gills will drop spores and the color of the print the cap leaves will help with identification. Wild guess- a pluteus of some type though maybe not if they were terrestrial...
  9. I agree with Jeff those do not look like oyster species that I am familiar with. Try a spore print? Oysters will be white/violet grey
  10. I believe it is as titled. Found on the forest floor. Growing off aspen branches. Southern NM.
  11. Last week
  12. They are dirty after rain. I will wash and take another shot
  13. I went to my usual hunting spot (9600’ southern NM) and found an odd fruiting body that I am having a hard time with. There was also one roundish example I harvested to inspect, but it was waterlogged and not much help (felt like a soggy cotton ball). I was going to photo the mushroom the next morning to note any change but we had 9 hours of rain and the example became extremely waterlogged. Water logged example is at 6’ oclock in the macro photo. Growing on old pine, possibly spruce, and my guess is the associated mycelium matt, shown in the macro inside the tree cavity, is the same as what is fruiting in the ground
  14. It was delicious. I ate a small piece that I cut off the the small closed cap specimen. I sautéed it in butter. The missing piece in the photos must have been a rodent. The photos are at least three different mushrooms. There were probably 100 to choose on this walk. Got to the point that I stopped mentioning them to my wife
  15. They look like lobsters, but they appear to have some old/dark/possibly soft spots?
  16. We were at the cottage and after a rain many mushrooms appeared. There were many of these. Tan colour , slimy surface, pores not gills, slender stem. Here are pictures. We are looking for help with identification and whether they can be eaten.
  17. Second pick of the day. Hope these are lobsters.
  18. We have seen so many mushrooms this summer 2020 at the cottage. I would love to find out if any are edible. O have foraged for DRYAD'S SADDLE, and morels in the spring and puff balls in late summer fall at the farm with great success. I look forward to learning more.
  19. They don’t look like oysters to me. Stipe location is wrong. Gills on oysters are decurrent, but those appear to stop at the stipe rather than run down it. Also the brown staining on the gills is putting me off I’m certainly not an expert. Just my observations
  20. Hello guys, first time harvested mushrooms this year. Are these oysters? Picked then from dead trees.
  21. It’s a shame that there doesn’t seem to be anything popping up in Washington state right now. Where I am it’s nearing 100 degrees every day, so nothing within a 100 mile radius is popping up.
