    This Barney fella must be able to see into the future because we really got a Soaking Rain at my house. Going to look for some shrooms this week.

    Picked about 3/4 lb of fresh oysters today that my wife found just looking out the front window. Had to use a ladder to reach them. They were on a dying elm tree. Cream of oyster soup tonight.

    I found some on Sunday but only one was good enough to eat. I had my eyes peeled and hoped to find more than i did.

    That Lions Beard (lions Mane) is a fairly unusual one for me to find. Found a couple of nice ones last year along a cold river in august of all things. One was size of a soccer ball

    Slice thin like a ritz cracker thickness, salt and pepper, saute in butter. Excellent

    It was pretty dry. I found quite a few right after the few rains we did get.

Unfortunately, I didn’t pick them until today and they were frozen solid. They look great but my question is, will they still taste ok after thawing and cooking?

    Have at those Mush-Cicles. They will often darken when they thaw but should be great to eat .

    Sliced them while they were slightly frozen and started sautéing them in butter. The color is the same as if they were fresh. By appearance, I can’t tell that the freezing made any difference. 88FCAB4D-FAEF-415F-8E7B-43C51FA2C76C.jpeg
