  1. Nice! This gives me some hope that we might still be able to find some down here in southern PA.
  2. It looks like everyone is doing pretty well. I checked a friend's house today that looked promising, but didn't find any.
  3. Nice, BigGameHunter!! Maybe I should check again. I'm in SC PA also.
  4. Well, we didn’t have much of a fruiting of black morels this year. We found a grand total of one. Haha!! Harmony and I went out for a while yesterday and found some small yellows and half free morels. It was a great time spending a few, semi productive hours on the woods. Maybe some day we will have another great year. They have been few and far between.
  5. Evan


    You definitely have yellow morels! Congrats!!
  6. I don't find many false morels. I wish I did. Not for eating, just because I think they are such neat looking mushrooms.
  7. That is a very impressive tree! You should be able to find hens growing from the roots for a while.
  8. We haven't had a good morel season in our area for years. We live in Adams County not far from Gettysburg. I'm hoping for a better year so we can have fun hunting and cooking.
  9. A Michelin star chef wouldn't confuse morels for other mushrooms. I have a feeling the morels were not the issue. And the article says they had multiple courses in a tasting menu at the restaurant. Maybe it wasn't mushrooms at all.
  10. They definitely look like oysters and will probably grow again on the same tree. I'm a little farther north in southern PA. I'm sure you can find some of the same mushrooms there. We pick morels, chanterelles, yellow foot, black trumpet, puffballs, boletes, hedgehogs, chicken of the woods, hen of the woods, oysters, and I'm sure some others I'm forgetting. Your best bet is to find someone who is experienced hunting mushrooms in your area. There may even be a local club that you can join. Sorry you haven't gotten a response sooner. The page is a little slow this time of year. Most of us don't find many mushrooms during the winter.
  11. I have seen mushrooms push stones out of the way when the grow. I do not think leaving a stem will keep a new mushroom from growing. Also, mushrooms deteriorate quickly, so the stem will rot away. And by pulling mushrooms they will have dirt on them. You would need to trim the stem off to keep your mushrooms clean in your basket or bag.
  12. A picture would make identification easier. As far as medicinal benefits, reishi has been used for centuries to treat many illnesses. Now it is considered to have many preventative health benefits. There was been quite a bit of research done. I made my first reishi tincture over a year ago and haven't used it yet! Haha!! It's not the best tasting stuff in the world.
  13. That's a good point. There are saw dust spawn blocks and kits that are on clearance because they are not guaranteed to stay dormant due to age. According to the description they may fruit almost immediately. The saw dust blocks are 2.5 kilos and the kits are 1 kilo. And they are half price. I was going to get those so we can get mushrooms quickly and because they have more varieties available on clearance. In think we might get some of each and see what they produce. Maybe we will order some spawn for logs when the weather is warmer. Thanks for the input. It was a great help.
  14. I had planned to use the saw dust spawn block like a grow kit. The description says most varieties will work that way. Then transfer the spawn outside in the spring. Maybe the regular kits would be better for now so we can have some growing soon.
