TOPIC: plant identification

Re:plant identification 8 years 2 months ago #2628

Yes Billy, ours is pretty much gone I took that pic while looking for some mushrooms yesterday. That is about as green as any of our sang is now. I also saw a few that were brown and laying flat on the ground,but didn't take any pics because it would be too hard to see. parts of Ohio are probably better. Seems like every time rain comes through its 50 miles east, west, north, or south of me. My county is probably one of the driest in the state. We got just a little rain tuesday, but not enough to pop up those fall shrooms yet.

Finaly got a little rain here last night. Only about a fourth of an inch, but thats more than we've had in a couple of months. Calling for more tomorrow and lower temps the start of next week. Billy, Those hens are a good mushroom to start looking for as it is pretty easy to identify. There are only a couple of other mushrooms that look anything like it and they are edible too. Chantrells are realy good, but some shrooms that look similar can really make you sick. Just be careful. Theres also one we call chicken mushrooms that are easy to ID. I've eaten them, but have heard of people getting sick from them. I've also heard of people getting sick from eating morrels, so who knows.

The top one might be a meadow mushroom or a horse mushroom if it has brownish colored gills. Really hard to ID just from picture. That bottom one I aint got a clue. I've got a book called \"Field Guide to Mushrooms\" from the National Audubon Society. It's got all kinds of information on over 700 diferent kinds of shrooms including wether or not they are edible or poisonous and detailed descriptions on how to ID them. It only costs about 20 bucks. Very well worth it to me.
