    The HENS!!

    Wow!!! That's a really nice score Old Oak! Hens are a mushroom on my want to find list.

    Amazing fungus

    Those are some neat looking mushrooms for sure. Every once in a while I'm tempted to try cooking one but then I read a report that they are not that great and decide to just enjoy the way they look.

    Those are always fun to find and eat!

    Our Foraging Memories - Summer 2018

    Eat-bolete that looks like you got your share of mushrooms this year. I'm in the same boat as cajun this year with a new wife and four month old son. Needless to say that I haven't had as much time to forage or fish as I have in the past.

    Our Foraging Memories - Summer 2018

    Looks like a good year of foraging to me too!

    Little of this and a little of that

    Wow! Honeys already! Looks like you had a fun forage.

    Black Trumpets are up

    That's a nice haul there Matt! I've not been brave enough to push through the mosquitos to check my trumpet spots.

    Last Sunday's Mushrooms

    Nice variety! The indigos are always a fun find.

    Really Big Cinnabar Chanterelles

    Wow! Those are large examples of cinnabarinus. I've seen them vary a lot in size, but I've never personally seen such meaty looking ones.

    Are these safe to eat?

    I agree with vitog.

    Some photos from the season so far

    Slime molds look so amazing. Nice collection of photos. If you don't mind me passing on a tip, the sky in the background in photos 4,5, and 6 detracts from the mushroom and sunlight hitting the front of the lens cuts down on the useable information reaching the sensor.

    Quite the surprise!!!

    Really nice score and it looks mighty tasty!

    Quick walk

    Those are some nice finds Matt! It's been a little dry here but we're supposed to get some rain this week.

    Chanties and trumpets OH!

    The thing about trumpets is that they are highly aromatic but very thin fleshed. Because of this I tend to use them in a way that doesn't emphasize the use of garlic or onions. A very plain omelet or scrambled eggs or maybe steamed with rice or as risotto. Nice finds!
