6th annual lab mushroom trip is a success!

After a miserable previous season, with not a mushroom in sight, we were relieved to find plenty of mushrooms this time around.  Well, maybe not “plenty”, but enough for a very nice dinner.  Moby has found a perfect matsutake (Tricholoma magnivelare), and Emily found the rare cauliflower mushroom (Sparassis crispa). Beginners luck, I say.  We also got a good haul of black trumpets, winter chanterelles, and angel wings, with a few hedgehog mushrooms and candy caps sprinkled in.  No leftovers this time!Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 21.01.08Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 21.01.26Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 21.01.41
