Hey Michael

Yeah. I found a cluster of 3 Lactarius Indigos. They are beautiful blue mushrooms which exude a blue sap when cut. They are reported to be a choice edible.  I found one Boletus, which I couldn't get down to species. It was off-white with tan/brown tubes.  I found dozens of chorals which I couldn't get down to species. My books list them as "edibility unknown" but a friend tells me that people eat them.  I'm a newbie,so I err on the side of caution.

I think I see some chanterelles. Mycol and I found lots of chanterelles in the Pisgah Nat'l Forest last summer. We camped by a stream and cooked them over a campfire. That was just after the Firefly Festival near Hendersonville, NC. Mycol has posted photos of chanterelles he has growing at Finca Mycol. There are so many wild edbles where we live in North Florida. Mark's Botany Everyday website has his lectures that discuss Elpel's Borany in a Day book. I like them. Have you identified any wild edibles where you live yet, Tim?

I may have answered my own question. I saw a picture of one labeled as a hedgehog.  I guess, if I had picked it, I would have seen spines, but I left it undisturbed.  I'm still curious to know if everything in that basket is edible. I see some I've been passing up.

Wow!  What's the black one in the middle?  I found one of those but failed to identify it. I've been seeing a lot of chorals lately, but not edible ones.
