    They're out there buddy. The blacks and greys are just starting in your area..
    We had a really late start to the season this year.

    All I've ever seen is Reishis in the south.. Maybe I need to look harder.

    I always smile when I see Morels! Can't stand 'em myself, but when I was a kid they were a great source of pocket money in that dead zone between fur trapping season and Snapping Turtle season. Haven't seen one in a loooong time. Thanks!

    I keep kicking the idea around of getting a spore syringe and trying to get some grain spawn going. I have a nice semi-shaded patch in my back yard that I think I might be able to inoculate but I am not sure how they would do here in CA. As I have read they take a couple of seasons to really colonize. I have read reports of one mycologist successfully growing them indoors and I have his procedure. My interest in the project is starting to come back again. I know they would sell like crazy at the farmers markets here. Seeing dollar signs.... which means more money for plants!!!

    wow utric.. didn't realize you had such a mycologist streak.
    Best of luck with the venture. I know Michigan State Univ. here has been cultivating them for years. They don't get very big when grown this way, but it's better than nothing!

    Nice! I wish we had good mushroom hunting here.
    I've tried inoculating a few colonies myself but without luck. We technically can't ship the spawn to Hawaii without spending hundreds on permits so I've tried to make my own. Still haven't given up though. I did get some shiitake mushrooms to sort of grow once.
    Thanks for sharing!

    well.... mycologist streak might be a bit of a glorification. Its a relatively new hobby for me and one I just play with here and there. I think its kind of fun. I would like to try growing straw mushrooms (Volvariella volvacea) at some point but I was advised to work up to that. I know liquid cultures can not get too cold and thus do not last a super long time (and most mycology suppliers do not seem to carry it).

    I would like to learn more about mycology but there are only so many hours in the day and my CPs were here first.
