"I too read the Humanure Handbook. It's a great resource.  Some people "flush" their composting toilet with a handful of Diatomaceous Earth. This keeps the compost sweet. Also, I'm wondering if the rainwater is such a good…"

"HEY Maria I've been trolling this site for help in identifying mushrooms. It occurred to me that you are probably very knowledgeable on mushrooms. I posted some pics on the Finca Mycol page. Any help would be appreciated. Hope you are well!"

Tim Kinney commented on Michael Levin's group Finca Mycol
"This was growing in mixed hardwood forest. It had spines like fur, and an odd shape. Can anyone help with identification? I'm thinking it's some kind of Hydnum, but which one?"

"I found an intereting shroom yesterday. My best guess is it's an Aminita, so probably poisonous."

"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…"

"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…"

The Cold Within by James Patrick Kinney

Posted on June 24, 2011 at 10:06am 9 Comments

Tim when you find mushrooms you want to know, bring them by our house.  Call Marc to make sure he'll be home first.  We have a lot of mushroom books to look them up in, and we do know some of the best edible mushrooms.  Did you see our NatureFinder blog?  Those huge mushrooms were tasty!
