A few more Wine Cap mushrooms popped out of the wood chips over night ...
Supposedly, they are a good mushroom for freezing. As I had mentioned earlier, this is our first year raising them ... so like so many other things in life ... with these too ... time will tell :)
Four bags full of slice Wine Cap mushrooms, cleaned up and ready for the freezer:
While out checking on the mushrooms I also checked by the base of one of the trees in the yard where an oddity of a mushroom grows every year. They are called Deadman's Fingers ... as the photo will attest ... they look spooky like a dead man's fingers.
There were also these pretty little orange ones growing in the moss ~
... and some kind of puffball.
There are so many species of mushrooms in our neck of the woods; but the only ones that we eat are the ones that we are 110% positive are edibles.
We love mushrooms and that is why we finally decided this year to take the plunge and grown our own. All our spawn was purchased through Field and Forest Products
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
