New Home-New Treats
by Billy Scrantom
(Murphy, North Carolina)
We just moved into our new (to us) cabin on acreage in Murphy, North Carolina. Part of our motivation included, in addition to wanting to use the property for God, being close to the land for our own delight and enjoyment.
Yesterday I noticed some mushrooms growing out of the stump of a dead deciduous tree. After investigation (using, especially your website) including an overnight spore pattern test, and beginning with a few nibbles, we concluded that they are oyster mushrooms. And, in abundance! We've got three trays drying in the oven (again, thanks to your website!).
Hope this will be the first entry of many more to come.
Thanks for the great info and tips.
