Finally found my holy grail yesterday, black trumpets. Unfortunately, they were well past due but at least I know where to look i.e. a far back bay of a Fulton chain lake. Miserable brook trout fishing in the rain today was saved by a big and fresh chicken find. Pan fried them in panko, mmmmm! https://goo.gl/photos/TfBukbQSqPmqqP5U6

Epic fails on the foraging front for me lately. Before labor day I scouted my maitake trees and locally and there was a new one sprouting, only an inch high so I left it for a few days to grow and of course someone got it. Then yesterday I went fishing/exploring in the southern adk for something to do in this late summer weather. On the way into the pond, I spied a big perfect lion's mane on a dying beech 30 yards off the trail. I went through the hobblebush with my canoe and grabbed it but then realized I didn't have a bag to put it in such that it wasn't in my backpack with the fishing stuff so I set it down beside the trail to get it on the way out. After all, I was only going to fish for a couple hours and who would venture down the trail this early in the morning and also be a mushroom hunter. 0.5 miles down the trail I found another nice lion's mane on a dead tree right next to the trail. Again I figured I'd grab it on the way out. Needless to day, both were gone when I walked out. I was peeved to say the least but it was my own doing so I guess the blame lies with me. So for those venturing out, lions mane is hot right now and I've seen plenty of honey's if you're into those (I'm not).

I took a walk this past Sat. and I was lucky to find some Lion's Mane (Hericium erinaceus) and also several puffballs. Good luck and enjoy the hunt.

That's great, I figured they would be. I don't have a spot locally so I'll have to wait for the northern ones to get rolling. I did pick a grocery bag full of nice young nettle the other day that I plan on using for beer making along with some birch syrup.

That is an amazing haul! I'm so glad I found this forum. I discovered last year I have morels growing in my yard and have been slowly learning about other wild edibles. Some of my research has led me to go back and correct decade old photographs from "neat fungus" to actual scientific and common names lol.
