at Meanwhile Back in Saluda B&B
not drawn to scale!
on the trail
nature's recycling system
"leatherback" milk cap
reishi, "mushroom of immortality"
tooth mushrooms, good to dye with (D-Y-E)
cauliflower mushroom, edible
parasitized Amanita, edibility unknown
meanwhile, back at Meanwhile, Back in Saluda...
they've got some sorting to do
the head of the table
checking their work
boletes and more
old man of the woods (in the center), edible
bicolor boletes, edible to most
Peck's milk caps, toxic to most
leatherback milk caps, choice!
chanterelles, the best!
waxy caps, edible, and reishi, medicinal
another four pounds of chanterelles found afterwards
and the coolest find of the day...
piggyback milk caps!
