|We find mushrooms in every season but winter. We've lived here for going on five years and didn't realize how prolific the Oysters are around here until this yr. We can literally walk out our front door and they're everywhere. Very delicious mushroom, almost as good as Chanterelles.|
We also find Hedgehog, Chanterelle, Lion's Mane, Boletes, Cauliflower Mushroom, Angel Wings and various minor mushrooms and Jellies everywhere.
Your teacher friend should have had bucket loads of Morels on her property after that fire.
Here is some interesting information about mushrooms.
