Foraging for mushrooms

The vegetable garden is continuing to produce.  Trays of tomatoes and tomatillos seem to be coming out the oven each day, with beans and squash to be eaten or frozen, too.

But a weekend mushroom foray with our neighbor, who's a mushroom expert, found a variety of interesting mushrooms.

The highlight were these lobster mushrooms.

 We had quite a large haul of them.

They were tasty!  Most went to a local chef who runs cooking classes and who was along as a chief forager.  (I must say I like shitakes and button mushrooms about as well, but it was fun to collect them out in nature, as long as you're totally confident that they're safe to eat!)

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
