A lucky find!

A few days ago in our rambles, I glanced to the side of the road and right there 3 or 4 ft. off the road were these oyster mushrooms, or as we call them tree mushrooms. Roger stopped and we gathered /picked them....and had them two or three times as snacks over the next few days.

On over in the woods, were more but most of them were done past the picking stage. If not, we would have had some to freeze. We have frozen them before and had good success.

They are very pretty! I didn't know they were edible and would be afraid of picking the wrong thing.

This was a real eye-opener for me! I love oyster mushrooms, but I always thought they were Asian imports.

I would love to learn what mushrooms were safe so I could pick them.

But regardless, I find mushrooms beautiful.

Did not know they were edible, if we never hear from you again we will know they weren't. :) It was nice visiting with you. :)

What a great picture, they look very fresh! Now for eating them, I would not know the good ones from the bad ones...I am glad you knew before you went to eating them ;>)! Have a great weekend!

Omigod! You must know what you're doing...we've got mushrooms sprouting up in the yard overnight but I wouldn't dare eat them...

I don't think we have any of these, though!

Are you still feeling OK?
