Snowed Shrooms

Mushrooms in First Snow

Yesterday we got our first snow, about 1.5″ total. It melted quickly as the ground is still warm but when I went walking in the fields this morning I came across patches of snow here and there. This snow was probably gone an hour later as the sun climbed higher in the sky.

    Walter, a question: I grew up gathering and eating mushrooms, primarily the “meadow mushroom,” an agaricus, which we used to gather by the bushel from field- discarded dairy bedding after the first rains, fricassee in homemade butter, and freeze. Over the years I have, with the help of books, expanded my fungal escapades somewhat. Being averse to dying, I stick to the agaricae and the boletes as low risk munchies most of the time. Do you have any automatically grabbable and edible mushrooms in your fields and woods? Anything you recognize and trust regularly?
