    June 27 and 28 forays

    All events have been updated.
  5. Are the June 27 and 28 forays still on ? There is no clickable way to sign up that I can see. If still on, where are we meeting?

    Please help identify

    Too old to eat and to identify for me, you really need a gill shot as well. Possibly Pluteus sps. And there's a good chance you have two different varieties of mushrooms, just noting the stem size difference.

    Please help identify

    Found these and wondering what kind they are. Are they edible? They are very hard.

    Who am I?

    After sitting on my counter overnight, it started to split and curl and the gills are very moist.

    Backyard Shrooms

    These most closely resemble Weeping Widow mushrooms. Despite its name, these are listed as edible, however there are some reports of upset stomachs in certain individuals, so it wouldn't be considered a good edible fungus. If you did consume it, be sure to cook them shortly after harvesting, as they blacken and deteriorate quickly.

    First Find

    Found my first morels. Also a cluster of oysters (i think).

    Morel season 2020

    Surprisingly, I found a fairly good haul of some very fresh large yellows yesterday, under Elm and Cherry trees, showing that the cooler than average temps have extended the season a bit this Spring (at least in Northern Indiana).
  16. We seem to get a few galls on our cedar trees every year. I rarely catch them fruiting, though. Bruce

    New mushroom

    Looks pretty similar. I never did get a positive ID, but I think DHuntington is probably on the right track (Peziza phyllogena). Bruce

    New mushroom

    I've been finding these around my yard for a couple of seasons. Did you get a positive ID? I just found these ones yesterday

    Thank you

    Morel season 2020

    We're at the end of the season. I was down there last weekend in Shades State park and went through some prime area and found nothing. Another group of hunters found 6-7 after 5 hours, so it's likely only going to be fairly productive north of Indiana from here on out.
  21. Could someone please tell me if morel season is over? I am in Vigo county Indiana

    Backyard Shrooms

    Hi, We have some shrooms that have sprouted in our yard. Are they toxic, ok for dogs? If toxic how do we get rid of them, if we can’t eat them of course.

    Welcome to the group. Not familliar with that area but i am sure there is someone here that is and could help
  24. I had never seen these before and just this last week I noticed them adorning my juniper trees. They have a tangerine color to the jelly like tentacles that come from the growth on the branches. They're not healthy for the trees, but they look really cool.
  25. Help again 😅
