    This man knows much more, Dr. Volk. He was a bit under the weather, when we last corresponded. Hopefully he is feeling better these days. I previously referenced him on this website, but not by name. He helped me to confirm a rather exquisite mushroom, growing near the base of a historic live oak. You can locate his publishings all over the net, and you can also email or call him; if he has time, he may get back with you.

    Went on a little walk today and found these growing on a tree, just picked them out of curiosity. Anything edible there ?

    I think all of those are oysters. But way past prime.

    I HATE this thread! I have hit 4 farms in the last 2 weeks in search of mushrooms and have not found the first one. I give up and then see more people finding them and it makes me want to give it one more try.

    Those appear to be oysters. However, I would not eat unless you are sure. Google oyster mushroom spore print for instructions on how to do a spore print. Oysters shave gils that continue from the cap to the stem. the term is decurrent. The gils have a slight licorice smell to me.

    Example of decurrent gils.

    It is entirely possible that we may own the very same kitchen sink, with somewhat similar faucet, while different countertops, though.

    Edit: I was incorrect, just checked.

    Not a cedar but looks like it in the pic. I think it was a box elder but it’s definitely not an evergreen.
