The nicely timed rains and warm temperatures combined to bring out quite a few mushrooms in our woods. Above are just a few of the mushrooms that we have noticed. Left to right: Platterfull (Tricholomopsis platyphylla), brown cup fungi, Fawn (Pluteus cervinus). Unfortunately, the only edibles in our woods right now are Oyster mushrooms. My brother reported seeing a large fruiting of Sulfur Shelf on his way home from work, so keep an eye out for those edibles!
