    the only thing here is some "freash" portabella and buttons. they havent had any dried anything here for quite awhile. living in the middle of nowhere sucks some times. i swear the local grocery store is constantly cutting the variety of stuff they sell for no reason, they are the only grocery store in town and get a huge amount of buisiness. i guess ill think about it for awhile.

    Mushrooms! The food of the Gods. I love mushrooms of all kinds. I think about getting the kits, but only to collect the spores. You can grow a few kinds on a well maintained compost pile, but I have not yet tried. I should. I eat lots of mushrooms and they are very expensive here (comparable to meat). Yum Yum.

    Word to the wise though.. Be extreamly careful with wild mushrooms or even mushrooms grown outside in a less than 100% controlled situation. Some mushrooms are highly toxic and can at times appear like edible ones. Eat the wrong one and it will kill you.

    Fungi perfecta sells spores/cultures which can be used to innoculate appropriate organic matter, as well as the kits. A much better deal if your serious about mushrooms.

    Rattler perhaps you can find some dried mushrooms from an online source?

    Oh yah? Did you know that fungi are complex animals closest releteves... they broke off form the same common ansector as the sponges at about the same time.

    Because Fungi can not photosynthisize, they must be grown in a food socrce from witch they can derive nutrients. Rotting logs, live animals, decaying organic mater, anything is fair game as long as it provides nutrients.

    Theres a interesting large mushroom in our lawn [dont say anything- i have a alot of time on my hands, ok?] that iv never seen anywhere else (altough its not like i go out of my way to look for fungi)

    Its been here for severel years and is interesting because of its size (half a foot in diamiter at the largest) and the fact that it grows just low enough to escape the lawn mower blades. It grown and a compacted part of the lawn and 'tills' the soil, if you will, by pushing its large mushroom heads up from the soil. It because of these mushrooms that the grass in the area thives. When pulled, the stem breaks off eisily and if you look closely, is infested by hundreds of tiny white insect larva growing and burowing inside, eating it from the inside out.

    that makes no logic

    I`ve seen those mushrooms too finch they are indented on the top? It`s about time for them to come up here,pushing up through the pine needles. We also get giant puffballs wich I have seen at 4+in at there edible stage(Haven`t tried any though) as well as the ones that grow on logs and these red ones.
