Moving an Established Fig Tree. Delayed post from Nov 2017
Daniel, thanks for the tips on blackberry bushes as posted on your "growing greener blog".
Chanterelles are common in the maritime Pacific NW. People used to tell me that the best chanterelle hunting sites were staked out by people who would shoot you if they caught you in their mushroom hunting area. I don't know, maybe that is legend. I bought some last month, didn't like them as much as morels or button mushrooms. Maybe it was the preparation.
In my vegetable garden, there was a patch that looked like white button grocery store mushrooms. But I didn't try them. I don't know enough about them to take the chance. I don't think I'm missing out on any great flavors. Morels, yes. But I've never seen one growing here.
I wonder if the morel mushroom growing kits really work.
In this dry climate, mushrooms are few and far between. If they were plentiful here, I would get a book and go searching. If my brother, who's a mushroom expert, was still alive, I'd ask him to take me hunting, and share his expertise.
It's really a shame we've been scared to death to eat mushrooms. So many ARE edible, but we hesitate/refuse to eat them. I'm guilty, although I can recognize about 6 edibles. Not that yellow one, Thomas. Nor Daniel's. Pretty, however!
Speaking of mushrooms....The following video:
.... I saw 2 of these in my back yard woods. At the time I had no idea these were sought after delicacy. Still I would not pick them for I have no experience identifying fungi and mushrooms.
Spud, 40s to 50s to 60s.
BB, I think if I want to see pretty colors, I'll plant zinnias again :-)
I found a photo of these from under the same tree, in Dec 2015. This must be the season for them.
Daniel, what temperatures are those mushrooms sprouting at?
> . . . nothing to eat.
Unless you want to see lots of pretty colors!
Randy, I agree with you. I'm really glad you are here, to share hour experiences and thoughts.
Some mushrooms that just popped up under a spruce tree near my house. I think these are Amanita muscaria. Very pretty, but not something to eat.
Daniel, I'm amazed at how much we have in common, garden-wise. I, too, took my geraniums inside. I trimmed raspberry bushes. Deer or possums took care of all my fallen pears. I had plenty for all of us. And, finally, with a little luck, kale, collards, and Brussels sprouts will survive a mild winter. Like you said, collards will resprout. However, they go to seed the second year, the leaves tasting bitter. It's probably a lost cause.
