Cauliflower and Lobsters

Be sure and view my last post on our Celebrity Dancing venture. It’s been updated.

It hasn’t rained appreciably in two weeks until yesterday afternoon and through the night – 2 1/2 inches, but I still found a few choice mushrooms. Hopefully more good stuff will come up this week.


These Sparassis herbstii were all around one pine. They are the cleanest and prettiest I have ever found. 2 1/2 pounds total




These lobsters were in one small group in my “monster patch”, so called by the over 100 pounds we found 5 years ago in a 2-acre old growth white pine plantation. The trees are dying, however, and the yields have been only 5-6 lbs.a year since then. Maybe this year will be another bumper crop. Hope !!!


This Berkeley polypore, 6 1/2 lbs, was at the base of the same tree we found one of equal size two weeks before.



IMG_0736I have been following these Berkeley polypores for almost three weeks. In a future post, I will paste all the pictures I took from when I first saw a pencil eraser-sized stub until today.

REMEMBER to view my last post on the Celebrity Dancing fund raiser !!!!

  1. We sauteed the Cauliflower mushrooms we purchased at your booth with a little butter, garlic, and onion and oh my were they fantastic! I can see how they would work well as a base for a soup or stock as well. Thank you for all of your insight!
