Illinois Mushrooms [Mar. 24th, 2009|10:14 pm]

On the way back from my recent road trip we stopped in Cahokia State Park (Cahokia, IL). The visitor's center had a little gift shop where I picked up this excellent text, published 1945:
exploring

This gem is apparently one of a series written for the Illinois State Museum. Other epic titles include "Some Plant Galls of Illinois" and "Poison-ivy and Poison-sumac" (both by Glen S. Winterringer, numbers 12 and 13 in the series, respectively).

A couple of illustrations - pardon the lack of a cut-text here, I have recently returned to LJ after a long hiatus and have forgotten how to use it properly..will remove these if requested.



 

 
I live in a state that borders on Illinois, so I think many of the fungi I encounter in the wild will probably be included in this volume.

Nothing will grow in certain parts of my yard, but I'm interested in trying to cultivate mushrooms in those areas. I have an exceptionally damp space beneath a tree. Has anyone here attempted to grow your own? Any tips to share? I think I need to go to the library.

Identification help! [Aug. 15th, 2008|03:08 pm]

So, I think I found some fairy ring mushrooms in my yard, but I want to make sure.

They are light tan in color with sort of tough stems. There is no evidence of a volval bag or ring on the stem. They were growing in the grass in small clumps forming a line, the caps ranging in size from a thumbnail to maybe 2" across. They look to be a couple days old so even if they are good I'm not eating them, I laid one out to take a spore print.



What do you think? Tasty treat or renal damage?

I'm Sandra and I love fungus. Welcome to my community. One of my goals for the summer is to learn how to identify some of the mushrooms growing in the woods near my house and see if any of them are edible. Then, I will develop weird but strangely appealing recipes using my newly found wild mushrooms which will undoubtedly involve the use of caramelized onions and pecans.
