    Anyone Seen/Harvested any Hens Yet?

    Nothing here. In fact, no rain in more than five weeks. If that doesn't change soon, I can't imagine that we will, either. I went hiking just yesterday, and carried a collection bag, in the vain hope that I might encounter something. The only mushrooms of any kind that I witnessed were artist's conk (Ganoderma sp). But in my mind's eye, I had visions of already-pinned mycelia lurking underground, just waiting for a soaking. Bruce
  5. I know we should be in that season here, so the hunt for the elusive Frondosa commences. I enjoy learning about other's successes also!

    in my backyard

    Following the picture I harvested the mushroom. I scoured the internet and found several very similar photos and text that it was an early chicken of the woods. I cooked a small portion (two bites) and found that it does taste like chicken. I waited two days and had no ill effects. Following I had several meals of it with no ill effects, but it is not my favorite eating mushroom and will probably limit my harvesting of it in the future. Next time I would like to try a slightly more mature example. Thanks for your response Barry

    It does have some likeness to it and it's possible that it's not matured yet. What does it look like now?

    Honey Mushroom

    At what stage do you decide that a honey mushroom is too far gone to harvest and eat? I've found that less than 10% of them in my area haven't been invaded by larva within the first day of them surfacing. I've only cooked the ones that hadn't been obviously eaten and the flavors were not as pleasant as I've heard many others speak of. I wonder if people are actually enjoying the flavor of the worms, thinking it's the mushroom 🤷‍♂️

    Chantrelle

    Judging from the size of the stalks, and caps, next to the ground ivy, those are too small and grayish to be honeys.

    Furry fungus?

    Thought this was crepitodus from a distance..feels velvety and really thick. No stipe, attaches flat to the wood. I'm not sure what this is?
  15. Found growing at base of old honey locust yesterday. I believe it to be Chicken of the Woods (Cincinnati’s). Not growing in shelf like pattern but vertical up from tree roots. Please help identify Barry

    Honey Mushroom

    I have never heard of honey mushrooms until this year and I am a little reluctant to try them, even with a positive confirmation. Some were at the base of trees and some along buried wood. Working on the spore print. I will add that to the photos when its complete.

    Chantrelle

    Agreed, not chanterelles. Could be honey mushrooms. Are they growing from soil, or buried wood? Have you taken a spore print? Bruce
