***** PICKING WILD MUSHROOMS TO EAT CAN BE DEADLY. Unless you acknowledge that and become a serious student that one wild mushroom in your basket that you eat could be your last.
DO NOT RELY ON ONE RESOURCE to learn what is essential. *****
Having made my 'Dangerous Declaration' above, let me state that the mushrooms depicted on this site are the ones I have been picking and eating for close to 40 years. The articles are my accounts, not a rehash of someone else's.
It's not all of them because this is a new site. I will add more as time permits.
When each of these species were 'new ones' for me, there was always that declaration in my mind.
However, notwithstanding the fact that I have been eating these for so long not everyone can eat the same things and have the same response. Keep that in mind too - always - when ingesting anything new for the first time.
If you live in the northeast U.S.A., specifically the Mid Atlantic states ( Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia and Washington D.C. ), then you more than likely will have the same varieties appearing during the seasons I have indicated, weather conditions permitting.
I don't get out West or down South so I can not speak for what mushroom varieties appear there.
I started this site to help people that live in my region and are interested in which varieties can be found,
the season they generally appear and the weather conditions existing during their discovery.
I also sell select varieties by 'Pre-order'. Email for prices and seasonal availability.
