First Hen !!

HenThat’s right. When I first began this blog, I lamented how I believed that I had collected all the decent edible mushrooms in the Great Valley except Grifola frondosa or Hen of the Woods. The wait is over. I found this 3-pounder a couple of days ago. It was about three feet from the base of a very alive white oak. Between this one and the white oak was another Hen. That one, however, was a bit older, and I could only salvage about a 1/4/ lb.

Oh well, I’ll be looking here next year ! This was a large tree, 20-inches or more in diameter, so surely it can support a BIG one. For now, however, I am quite happy with this one.
