These inedible ones popped up in the mulch in the backyard that had reddish caps.
Some where wide and white, peeking out along the rocks-
Some were wavy and orangish in the pinestraw-
The gills were open -
Some looked a little dirty-
This one had a yellow tint to its upturned cap--
What does this one look like to you???
I marvel at how different they all are, this one's cap is kind of fuzzy looking-
These little ones were all lined up-
looks like the snails like mushrooms.
Aren't they cute?
This one looks as if the cap is part of the stem--
This is the gnarliest one I found in the yard. Almost looks like a pinecone.
Finally, a year after plugging the logs, I finally found an edible mushroom!! I was sure this was a Shiitake, up until it was time to eat it. I had to send a picture to Tradd for verification. Call me a scaredy cat..or cautious, but I wanted to be sure!!! This is the first one I had harvested --waiting for them to start popping.
Looks like some"body" took a bite of my first mushroom! Do you grow mushrooms? How long did it take for you to harvest the first one? I also plugged some Oyster mushrooms, waiting on them to appear.
