  1. This all started because of my little girl and me being over protective. I dont want my little one eating anything shes not supposed to while playing outside, which is basically alot lol. But all in all I got interested in Mycology got all the books from the library I could and still reading them. I am here to get a better sense in identifying mushrooms, further my experience, and hopefully understand them to the point I can use that to support my family.
  2. Hello everyone. Thank you to all who helped with my last identification. Alas, I think I figured this one out myself. I was hiking this evening in NC and found the cool mushroom in the pics. I scavenged a zipbag from my day-pack and harvested the specimen. I photographed it and took it home to spore print and identify. (See pic, please.) I tried an app to identify it and it came back as something completely wrong, with several more suggestions that were easily ignored. I will not name the app. A few minutes on the internet, and I am fairly certain it is a Volvarialla bombyc
  3. Hello, noob here. I found this on a backpacking adventure in mid July (About a week ago) in Central North Carolina. It looks delicious, thought not being an expert, I didn't and probably will not harvest or eat it. I am curious what it is and whether it has an look-a-likes or other things to be concerned with. Again, not going to eat it but I do think it is a shame that I don't know more about what I can and can't eat in the mushroom world, so unless I chicken out, wild mushrooms may be a new adventure. I tried looking it up and it looks to me like something akin to A Chi
  4. I know almost nothing about mushrooms and these were in my yard. I was just curious what kind they are.
  5. I came across these cool rusty polypores. They look like melted iron! I was in Northern Georgia/Western North Carolina hiking the appalachian trail in December. I am unable to identify these even a little bit. The last pic shows what i believe to be unrelated species found on the same tree.
  6. I found these beauties on a moss-covered tree in late december. I believe these are panellus serotinus given the time of year but could they maybe be pleurotus ostreatus? There appears to be little or no attaching stalk, kidney bean color, crowded gills that appear a lighter shade of the caps.
  7. Hello all, happy to find my way here. I live in Western NC, near the Tenn. border, on an old, rundown farm surrounded by Pisgah Nat Forest. This is my 3rd year hunting edible and medicinal mushrooms. I hike and run in the forest and one day found an entire fallen Beach tree covered in Oysters, that's how I got started. I ate so many of those I smelled "funny" according to my GF. That first year I also found Chicken (Sulphur Shelf) and Fried-chicken mushrooms, but they were old and buggy. And, I ate my first Chanterelle that summer. Also, I burned off around some old Apple trees on my proper
  8. Hello folks! I'm a lucky newbie to wild mushroom forging. I've posted some pictures on the facebook sites, so apologize for double post, but just wanted to share some pictures of a recent find and some background information. For the last few years I've had shitake logs that have produced some, about 30 this fall, which was the largest harvest yet. After a heavy period of rain this past spring and then again in the fall, a mushroom explosion in our back 1 acre forest got me thinking hard about forging in the wild. We've been in the self suffiency mindset for a few years now and this hobby is
