[QUOTE=NarnianGarden;633861]Has anyone ever tried those grow-mushrooms-at-home-kits?
They're increasingly available here, and Russian seed sites have so many... (even non-edibles for ornamental purposes!!)[/QUOTE]

One winter, I was given the kit in the link below. I kept it above the kitchen sink and it did grow some tasty oyster mushrooms. It did not last as long as they say it will but I may not have gotten the watering right.

That Tricholoma equestre used to be considered delicious variety in my childhood, and I have eaten it many times. It was shocking to see w few years back that it's no longer recommended.

Many many gilled mushrooms however are harmless and delicious :)

Next to our house there is a grass field. After raining it is full of mushrooms. I use to go to collect mushrooms, it is sooooo relaxing...

This time I collected fairy ring mushrooms and some oysters.

Very nice!

Tuncse, you are lucky! No hills to climb. I don't know how many years longer I will be able to look for them in our woods. Even if the ground is flat there are trees to go around and fallen ones to go over.

I remember living in an area that had cows in fields and so, of course, we picked 'cow mushrooms', (like the store bought ones).

As you know I'm a big fan of forest and wild mushrooms.

Here are the best pictures from 2015 season.

For all of y'all that are lucky enough to have lots of edible mushrooms that y'all have posted pictures of how about the next time y'all go mushroom hunting posting pictures of how (and recipes) you prepare and eat the mushrooms, please?

Deborah May 6, 2017 04:13 PM

And do you dry them in quantities?
