just got back from a walk thru the woods   I think the few that I am comfortable with picking are done for the year   It was a very good season for me with about 30lbs in the freezer   mushrooms on everything !

A friend took my older daughter and I mushroom picking today (which I think will be my 5th time out, both this season and ever before).

We found some shaggy manes, which I tried this evening and have a very delicate flavor, plus some box elder oyster mushrooms (which I've had once before earlier this season, and have a meatier taste and texture).

We also found some stinging nettles, which I have not tried yet, but understand can be pretty good when boiled.

bogtrotter,
I remember several years ago on an elk hunting trip, I made blue grouse breast with coffee, onion and fresh cut shaggy mane mushroom gravy. Was outstanding, and one of the best camp meals I ever had! Love the “peppery” little buggers!

They were egged, breaded and fried in olive oil. Taken out, and drained.
 Put on cookie sheet with some sauce and grated parmigiana..
Put over pasta and more sauce.. @)

That looks delish! Still looking for some puff balls here. I did see one older Shaggy mane in someone's front yard last night, but pickings are slim.

Haven't done too bad down here in PA, some Chiken of the Woods, Oysters, and shrimp of the woods. Had a really nice Morel crop in the spring. Getting out this afternoon fingers crossed we find some after the past 5 days of rain.

My " GO TO " oak tree was checked yesterday and my son pulled a 4 pound hen off from it. It is the tree that last fall produced the 3 monsters growing right next to each other, all taken at the same time. We scanned the ground hoping to see hens growing in the same exact spots as last year, but did not see anything at first glance. My son wandered around for 5 minutes checking other trees and stayed behind at the go to tree and waited for him. While waiting, I got down closer to the ground and saw 2 hens smaller than my fist budding out in the exact spots from last year. We missed these when first checking because the color was so close to matching the soil they are emerging from.

I am stoked now that these are growing, and will be back there to check on them every weekend until we have a killing frost here. NOT SKUNKED AFTER ALL  @) ;)

Update on the 2 hens - checked them yesterday and they are still growing, still small and will let them grow as long as possible until the first frost is predicted here. I will check again next weekend. They are on state land which I also do squirrel hunting and mountain biking on ( Dutchess county ). I was carrying the 28 gauge around with me yesterday and did not even see a single squirrel out. I was very surprised by that as mid-October is usually prime time for squirrel hunting.

My season has been the complete opposite of last year. I found some nice chickens in early September when I didn't expect much, and since then a few puffballs have been stumbled upon but I am drawing a blank on everything else. Really have put in some effort and all my dependable spots have produced almost nothing. Such small and scattered offerings that I have left them all for seed.  Disappointed - Maybe the dry summer ?

I have not tried to eat one of those, I am not positive but they are probably in the broad class of LBM = Little Brown Mushrooms which are generally poisonous. Avoid these. I am still  a re;ative novoice and will probably remain that way. One of the good things about mushroom harvesting is that some of the choicest edibles are 1. ) abundant when the conditions are right and 2.) Easy to identify and have confidence that they are not poisonous due to not having poisonous look-alikes. No need to risk a poisoning by trying to expand outside of the 7 mushroom varieties that I have eaten

I’m not that adventurous so not ready to try them but noticed them growing along the stone wall along my planting beds under a huge black walnut. Probably spores from the mulch used in the beds but figured I’d toss the pics out to you guys.

wish I could help It's out of my line of " I'm sure of this one".  Went out again this morning and drew a total blank.  Very disappointed in the lack of mushrooms this year.  I'm still hoping to find some in my travels, but I'm done looking
