Building Permanent Culture in Knoxville
OK, Let's shoot for March 17th out at our farm at 9:30. I'll post an event notice the first of February to give everyone who is interested a chance to weigh in on the date. Glad there is interest!
OK, a bit shamed faced regarding posting an event. But, I did post the event discussed. The shamed faced bit comes in when trying to figure out how to invite this group on the event page. Any assistance would be appreciated. Or, simply go to the event page and sign up if interested.
My luddite tendencies are showing.
Well, it sounds like we have a nice little group ready to scour the woods for mushrooms in March. I’m sure our collective knowledge will help make it a success. Although, if any of you with more detailed education on mushrooms wish to join us please do.
I like the idea of carpooling proposed by Shelagh (nice one).
For those of you planning on coming out to our farm mosey on over to the event page in the next few weeks and sign up. Now all we need is a decent rain and some more warm weather.
I havn't been keeping up...I am very interested in this if it's open to anyone ?
The mushroom we found throughout the woods with the somewhat gelatinous shaft and the round cap is probably one of the Calostoma members. My reference "A Field Guide To Southern Mushrooms" indicates it is "of no interest as an edible". The other common mushroom we found: salmon colored cap, white gills meeting the stalk meets most of the criteria of the Hygrophorus family. Many of these are edible. But none of my sources raved about their culinary properties.
Glad to find out about the various medicinal mushrooms we found growing in the woods. Let's do this again.
Thanks Brian for hosting and Cindy for the great lunch. It was wonderful. I offer up my little neck of the woods in West Knoxville if anyone is interested in another hunt next weekend. I will leave the paring knife in the drawer next time -- the wounded-mushroom-hunting-warrior did require a couple of stitches. Such a dangerous hobby!
I'm definitely up for another forage. But I'm not sure I could make one next weekend. Farm life is starting to really kick into gear. But, I'd be ready in mid-April.
Glad you survived the knife fight!
