    these are not good for eating. I'd chopped them up with the riding mower & didn't know it until I'd started to rake the yard. :eek:oooh: :cool2:

    here are some from a few weeks ago. the puffball mushroom(the big white ones) are very easy to distinguish from the poison kind. you can feed the whole block with one too. lol

    the smaller ones you have to do a spore print to be sure. DONT eat any mushroom just from internet pictures!!!!!!!!!!!

    I've not gone mushroom hunting since I was a kid & I would'nt mind going back to those days again. About 35-40 years ago.
    P.S. I was'nt planning on eating these anyway.

    Lee, they are a species of bolete, most species are safe but can be hard to get a positive ID so are best left alone unless you really know what you are doing.

    I've not hunted mushrooms since I was a kid about 35-40 years ago. Mostly because no one really tried to teach me. :angry:

    Last summer I found a recipe on the net - puffball chicken. It was great. The mushroom turns to wet bread but the chicken is really good.

    This year, a guy turned me on to some hen of the woods and I've got a bunch of it in the freezer. It really is a cadillac of mushrooms.

    I've bought some dried oysters and boletes. I've gone through a few pounds of dried shittake in the last year. I never had anything but a button mushroom two years ago.

    I'll post some more photos of mushrooms that I've found in the back yard. This second batch is something else.

    thats one great thing about the puffball, it cant be mistaken very easily. if its white and has the texture of white bread inside its good. when they start to yellow its too far gone. the lookalikes are very porous and like Styrofoam inside. read up on them tackleholic, im sure you still have them popping up down your way for a month yet.

    The 1st photo is from the batch that I'd posted earlier, the same spot. The 2nd photo is something different, these are a pink/rose color with some white/yellowish color, they were finely chopped with the mower. :cool2:
