Feed them to your dog - if it does, then don't eat them.

I think a week or so later I remembered a they played great versions of Lovelight, and Franklins Tower.
that was the show!

it was misting when they played fire on the mountain

when they went into the thunder verse, lightning hit behind the

stage and 30,000 freaks lost their minds. Great times!

I have to edit here after talking to friends.

1988. You folks were at a different show.

I had my first wild mushrooms this past spring. My son brought over some Morels that we sautéed in butter. They were great.
A couple of days later he brought over about 5 pounds more. When he was leaving I left them on the kitchen counter. When I came back in they were gone and Zoltan the wonder Vizsla was licking his lips . About $250 worth on craigslist. Gone!
Was Zoltan ok afterwards? I'd heard morels were bad for dogs. I was also under the impression that eating them raw wasn't a good idea either.

Not sure but I believe edible mushrooms do not have "gills" underneath like those.

Oyster mushrooms are not only edible, but excellent eating. They do have gills, like many edible mushrooms (including portobello and shiitake). The presence or absence of gills helps identifying mushrooms, but by itself does not indicate whether a mushroom is or is not safe to eat..

Yeah, under cow patties is where they grow. Back in the day we would go on shroom safaris in area cow pastures,learned real quick how to distinguish between cows and bulls in the dark. Could've scripted a Cheech and Chong movie from our adventures. Boil down a grocery sack full to a primeval slime, mix with Crystal Light powdered lemonade- nasty taste but would light us up. Good times....

Back in the 70s I drove up to Dallas with a friend.
partied for the weekend.
mushroom tea had 151 in it.
driving back to Waco at night in a 56 F100 we dropped a 390 and 4 on the floor from a car into I watched UFOs follow us all the way back home

I can`t think of any edible culinary mushrooms that do not have gills except truffles, porcinis, and morels.

Please be very careful hunters here. Chanterelles have tricky gills. Some look false but are delicious and safe. These are not false or short gills.
If a gill ends but not curving along, leave it alone.

If you can not identify any mushroom 100%, walk.

A mushroom walks into a bar. Bartender says, "We don't serve your kind here! Get out!" Mushroom says, "Why not? I'm a fun guy!"

One of the very best wild mushrooms, Boletus edulis, has no gills, also true with all edible Boletus and the giant puffball. There are quite a few good, edible mushrooms without gills. Your last sentence contains valuable wisdom- if you can't identify the mushroom, don't eat it- definitely words to live by.

Correct. I should have noted that fact.
And there are many other identifiers to aide in verification. Never rely on only a few. There is no substitute for caution, research and experience.

Thanks, will have to research those edibles.

Magics grow under cow patties?

Never eat shrooms before leaving for the party. If the road starts going backwards reallllllllly fast, pull over and call for a ride.

So this thread has stopped me from harvesting those mushrooms growing on the tree, how about anyone who has successfully grown them?

I wouldn't mess with eating any other type that you don't know anything about.

There are 4 false morels in this photo. They have separate caps from the stem and some have white fuzz in the stems.

They are iffy for some folks.. I don’t pick them for myself but have a buddy that eats them. We usually find them 25 to 1 over real morels.

As far as what is growing on your tree, if those are Oysters they are past eating.

once we started looking for mushrooms, we were surprised how many varieties grow in certain woodlots....

Best to buy a book and get some ID tips...
