  1. This is a first for us. We have never seen shaggy manes before. I would have harvested some, but this was it. They were growing right beside our driveway when we got home yesterday. Since there were no more we just left these to spread some spores and hopefully we will find more in the future.
  2. This has been one of the wettest summer's ever in PA. I'm not a bolete expert, but I think that might be the problem. More moisture means more bugs, more mold and faster decomposition
  3. They can continually produce depending on the conditions. But, I believe, eventually the wood will break down too far and not be capable of supporting b the fungus.

    That's pretty cool.

    I realize this post is in the wrong place, but this is where it will be seen by everyone. Our silent auction only has a few more days and still no bids. I realize that most of us scroll right past the link after all this time without even thinking. This is just a reminder in case you forgot. I'm sure whoever wins the auction will be very happy.

    The HENS!!

    Nice! I can't wait to start finding them. We've had plenty of rain and more on the way. Just a few more weeks unless the temps start dropping soon.

    Today's find

    The yellow mushrooms look like smooth chanterelles. Congrats!! The pink ones could be cinnabar chants, but I'm not sure because I have never found those.

    Need a pro's expertise

    I agree that neither of these is poisonous. And th IDs sound right to me. If you have ash trees around, especially dying, you might have a good chance of finding morels in the spring.

    Illness from Maitake

    One thing to remember about par boiling is that it may remove compounds from the mushroom that could remain in the water. If making soup, don't use the par boiling water. Make sure you throw it out and start with new water or stock.
  11. That is a pretty nice haul! The rest should still be there when you go back and in my experience they will flush in following years with the right weather conditions.
  12. It looks like you are definitely having a great year. Great pictures!

    Locally scarce mushrooms

    I live in South central PA and I have never found lobsters.
  14. Yes, it's Virginia creeper. I don't know if ginseng grows here.
