Hello, I am fairly certain this one is a loins main as I have found lots of them in the past just not as big and fresh. I cooked a little up and it tasted as if it were a smaller one. I just can't believe how much water is in this one literally if you touch it gently it leaks water. Thanks for the advise.

Steve, I suggest leaving the bulk of it in place and shopping pieces of it to some chefs to see if they feel that it is something they might wish to purchase. Was it Bears Head? I do not recall seeing Lions Mane that far North. I personally feel that the Lions Mane is worth more. The Bears Head is grown commercially and chefs can easily order it in fresh. If no one wants it and it tastes good to you then I would slice and dry it or cook and freeze.

A 50-60# lions mane would be worth precisely nil to anyone who knows anything. By that time, they are sour and woody.

Hello all, Anyone have any idea what a 50 to 60 pound lions mane might be worth? I left it on the tree looked like it might be old so I took a small chunk out of it and it looked very fresh about a quarter of an inch below the surface.

Dan in Snohomish County...Hedgehogs and Yellowfeet are the winter mushrooms in western Washington. This is a bad year to start looking for them though, there aren't very many around.

Hello everyone, I just stumbled upon this site looking for local myco-fanatics like myself. I plan to make this season my first serious WA morel hunt in eastern WA. We had record fires, and there should be more territory than normal. I am more experienced with native flora and orchids than mushrooms, but I am learning fast... What mushrooms are good to hunt in western WA in the freezing months? I would love to do more winter hiking/hunting. -Dan in Snohomish County, WA

Hey everyone! Does somebody has contact information of the following morel buyers: Rony (bought morels at the Watson Lake fire in 2011) and Fred (bought morels at a fire close to Williams Lake 2011) ??? I lost their business cards and i wanted to contact them. Thanks!

Hey shroomgirl, I'm in Rochester, wa. I joined a mushroom club to find those two things and now I don't have to wait around for the morels, I'm hiking all winter. candy caps are tough, truffles even tougher, I got my first truffles sat. , 7 small whites. no candy caps this year, I hear they are in tacoma right now, but my few patches have none.

I have grown shitaki on green alder logs....you can not use dead alder (snags) the logs have to be green, they will have mushrooms for 4-5 years then they are to dry. lots of work to put the spawn in the logs.......but the end product is great.

Big Bad John the Morel Farmer how gose it ?.I see your looking for them Cactus Morel's again A". I have tried this and head great luck with a Species of humem's on the planet Earth and now it has been over run by many of them and it's time to harvest this beford the year end's.

Boletus Joe; I have never tried growing Shiitake but do keep dried ones for cooking. The alder I am familiar with makes for good light-weight walking sticks and nice chanterelle patches in some areas. I agree with you in not introducing a species that is not indigenous to an area. But I am not above attempting to enhance propagation of a species when found there naturally.

Interesting..... I always thought it would be great fun to inoculate a bunch of alder snags with Shitaki Spawn along some of the well travelled trails in this area... And then see if it would spread to some of the other trees in the area.... But perhaps introducing a different species is not a good idea. We have enough invasive plant etc. already....... But sometimes I am tempted, There are some very successful Shitaki farms up this way.....

Boletus Joe. ...as with any good idea they tend to catch on quickly and many of mine have also petered out just about as fast. The current fun for me is in attempting to entice wild gourmet mushroom growth in new habitats or improve propagation in the citrus orchards.

I still have the blog.... but what started out as a good idea soon petered out, As for the perforated plastic tray, it is very useful for displaying all kinds of other shrooms....

Thanks Joe, no wild cedars down here but it is not too far to where they grow. I have taken photos of conica growing upside down in burn holes and perhaps naturals growing sideways and downward tilted in my photo files. Do you still have your blog site with the photograph I let you use of some of my morels in a perforated white plastic tray?

Well Thanks for the info (as such) I live no where near any deserts. But good luck with your efforts. I just could not imagine any shrooms growing in a desert. Mind you there have been many times I have been surprised by where I have found them. Even found them growing upside down on the bottom of an overhanging bank. Keep up your efforts. I could send you some cedar boughs if you like for background....LOL

Joe, you can find photos of cactus morels on line but only one that I know of shows them growing near cactus and that photograph was stolen and used without permission in a book. I try to be careful to not show the variety I am experimenting with next to any identifiable plant and leave the cactus part to ones imagination. Whenever I post a photograph I use decoy leaves etc to hide actual habitat. As with any trial & error phase of growing wild gourmet mushrooms there are usually more headaches than profitable results. Might I suggest the utilization of a hot house, heated grow area of a building or a Hiroshima Tent such as is used in Japan for inducing or controlling Matsutake Mushroom growth.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all & hopefully to all a primo start of the morel year this coming spring. Mad Morel, the New Year has started out about ten degrees cooler than normal down here but may get back up to 70F or maybe even 22C later this week. I am hoping for a good crop of farmed cactus morels fairly soon. ... depending of course on various important factors.
