I am a Polish Podpinka Picker from Pennsylvania.

That's pronounced "PO-pinky"

Those guys appear in the fall after the first frost. There's a mushroom you pick in the spring? I never knew!

I have not passed on the skill of mushroom identification on to my children. I hope there is still time.

There is a tradition of putting a silver dime in the pot when boiling your mushroom. The story goes that if the mushrooms are bad, the dime will discolor and act as a warning to not eat the mushrooms. I am pretty sure this is folklore, but I'll be damned if I ever cooked a pot of 'shrooms without a dime in the pot.

Yes, the dime MUST be silver. I constantly misplace my car keys, but I know exactly where my mushroom dime is at all times.

There are old mycophiles, and bold mycophiles, but there are no old bold mycophiles.

If you are unsure of a mushroom ALWAYS do a spore print!  Silver dime is definitely an old wives tale.

funny thing is:  she hasn't spoken to me since then.


That sounds like a good thing.

Yeah, it would be hard to talk to her anyway with a mouthful of butter-fried Morels.  Laughing

I love it when the "educated" act as if they know what's best for the rest of us.

Being that the spores are microscopic and a field full of Mushrooms you've described would be almost impossible to exterminate.

The mushrooms you pick are actually just the fruiting body of a much bigger organism.  You would have to dig up the whole field and kill the mycelium in order to kill a field of mushrooms.

  Yes,I believe you are right... but,is that for all Mushrooms?  I don't know enough about them ...

  I do know that the biggest Mushroom  (family?) in the World is in the UP. I believe it was discovered a few years back, and it covers thousands of Acres.

  I think it's near the only native Cactus to Michigan.
 
 Come to think of it... Michigan is a weird State. Smile

ps. We do have Bears in lower Michigan ... lots of them. In the Thumb/Port Austin Area, and a lot in the Grayling area.

Yeah, I knew that we have bears, just none of them where I'm from.  I saw one once as a kid near my dad's house in Antrim County.

You are right about the worlds biggest mushroom.  It is one of the world's largest organisms.
