Adventures of the Boomer ‘Shroomers! – Late May Oysters

Today (5/26/17) while we were picking newly sprouted Meadow Mushrooms (Agaricus campestris) in the grasses of a local park, we met Jack Myers and his grandfather (they were fishing for crappie in a nearby pond.) Jack told us he had seen BIG mushrooms sprouting from a cottonwood tree's base, and took us to see. Below is a picture of Jack, Campbell (our dog), Joy, and Jack's grand father. We estimated the Oysters Mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreatus) he found weighed about 4 pounds. A very fine find, and he shared them with us. Thank you, Jack.

    Where are the mushrooms? We tried Burning Bear.

      Apparently the Kings (Boletus rubriceps) were somewhat early this year (2018), we found a few dozen in late July above 9500’ near Webster Pass. We’re getting reports now (8/25/18) that MATSUTAKES are being found—so we’ll check out our Favorite spots near Nederland next week. Good Luck, Jimbo
