    Great pics Dave!!
  2. I think it’s often one thing preying on another and then coming to “realize” that they can use this other organism to their own advantage. This is the origin of how eukaryotic organisms acquired mitochondria and chlorophyll. They were consumed but gave the host energy so they didn’t kill them.

    Oysters and others

    Nice! We’ve had a few great winter flushes here too. Always a treat. I made this marinated mushroom recipe with mine And they turned out fantastic. https://honest-food.net/italian-marinated-mushrooms-recipe/

    Oysters Today

    They were mostly P. ostreatus with a few P. serotinus mixed in. I went out again today. They were all growing from black willows. There weren't any growing on cottonwoods (which are plentiful in that area). They were very high today so I had to get my trusty fishing weight and dacron fishing line to get them down! There was also stiff competition from the deer. You can see in the first photo that they munched off the ones that were within range.

    Oysters Today

    Went out for a bit along the river. We've had temps in the mid 40's for about a few days here after lots of snow. The only place I found them was in a frozen marsh. Found oyster mushrooms and some flammulina velutipes. It was really beautiful out. Gonna go back out tomorrow. I'm on break from school and my girls are still in school, so I'm trying to take advantage of the time.
  6. We’ve had a huge snow melt here in Nebraska too with highs in the upper 40’s. Going out tomorrow afternoon. I’ll report in after I go out.

    Found walking to the bar!!

    No. It was on a silver maple in a neighborhood park.
  8. Found this huge lions mane on the walk to the bar last night. We had to trim some of the dark off the top but it got a lot of good shroom from it. Also, sorry about how smug i look...I blame the whiskey.

    How fast can hens grow?

    They definitely take days to grow. They will grow relatively quickly if they fruit during a multi day rainstorm though.
  11. That’s awesome. Gotta love those giants.

    White Sheep Head

    I’ve found one around my place. Really pale tan on top. It grows the same every year too so it must be a genetic variation.
