What varieties do you find between now and Spring?
Hen of the woods, oysters and Puffballs.
The hen of the woods which is typically a fall mushroom had a huge fruiting last month. This may have hurt the fall fruiting. I expect oysters galore with some soaking rains in October. The puffball season may be past at this point because of the season.
Barney's being an optimistic feller talking about SOAKING RAINS in October.
Ya beat me to that comment! Though I am thankful that the good lord gave us a 10 min shower this morning. That's better than nothing.
Oysters in November-January again if we get some good rains. Lions Mane in late Sept-early November.
Never heard of lions mane.
Ate oysters tho. Not bad at all.
One of those shrooms that you can’t mistakenly identify as something else. If you like scallops you’ll like this one. Slice them about 1/4-1/2 inch thick and sauté in butter.
I rarely find them but they are good.
I have 2 trees behind my house that produced a few last year but they were dried up by the time I found them @ the 1st of November.
Lions mane seem to grow slowly and need good humidity during the process. They hardly ever get those conditions around here and remain small, or dry up early. I have a reliable oak that produces every year, but rarely ever get a good one.
Last fall (2018) my back & front yard were full of puff balls. This year I haven't seen one, too dry!
The few i have found were smaller than my fist to golf all size. Saw a huge one (almost the size of my head) before i knew they were edible and have not saw another anywhere near that size.
Yes! I have saw YUGE ones, but not very often.
Fresh mess of morels would really hit the spot today. Im gonna have to look into preserving some next year. I don't see how they could be any shrooms this fall dry as it's been
