So, I found this mushroom Monday night. It probably weights like 6 pounds.
It's a Maitake, or in these parts it's known as Hen of the Woods.
I had an offer of fifty dollars for it but I'd already promised chunks to mushrooming friends and co-workers - and I want some for myself. It's supposed to be a very tasty shroom.
It's pretty exciting. It's my first major mushroom find. It's like finding buried treasure.
