  1. Last one (for now). Yard mushroom around my wood piles take at different locations. I think the first is just a juvenile version of the second and the cap hasn't fully opened yet. Will keep an eye on it in the next few days. The ring on the stem is attached and does not slide up or down. As you can tell, I know very little about mushrooms and I rely on photos from books to get me close. Not set up for spore printing yet, either.
  2. I was impressed by the thick stalk.
  3. Looks like only three more.
  4. Interesting color. Not much else to say.
  5. Well, I might as well post the rest. Getting bored?? These formed a fairly ring in a hardwood forest around decayed matter. Only two inches tall at the time. Never got back to check on status. I will this sweek if they are still there.
  6. Found out in a mowed area. Hard shell; can't say much more.
  7. Found along the edge of the woods. Several clumps of them; not individuals. Due to that fact, I did not harvest them. At first, I thought they were Chantelles, but then maybe Jack-O-Lanterns.
  8. These are yard mushrooms forming a fairy ring around White Pine trees. Yellow surface underneath with pores instead of gills.
  9. I've been out a couple times this early Fall here in the Midwest IL), and ran across a couple of mushrooms that are new to me. So, I'll post them individually and number them #1, #2, etc. What I'm really interested in is learning how you identify these mushrooms. Short of going to the pictures in books, what are your criteria for identifying each one. I have two "Edible" mushroom books that I can go through, but that doesn't seem too scientific. So here's #1. Found along the edge of a hardwoods.
  10. That's what I thought, but Honeys were mentioned.....
  11. Unfamiliar with a lot of mushrooms talked about here. What's the one in the photo?
  12. I'll be camping this week and next week, weather permitting, and will be doing a little walking in the woods. I hope to find some Grifola frondosa this year so I can try it one last time. I will take photos of what I collect and I'll break a piece off to see if it turns black (photo) to eliminate the possibility of it being a black staining polypore. i usually find some Laetiporus, but don't harvest too much because there's not much flavor there for me. Still fun to find.
  13. Must be an inside joke. What's the bales (straw/hay?) for?
  14. Unfortunately, I didn't find them, my neighbor did😃.
  15. What about just blanching them instead?
