Would anyone seriously pick and eat these ?
One thing I feel compelled to remind people who toss spent subs in their yards to get a few more mushrooms (which everyone should do!) is that we need to Positively identify each individual mushroom.
Don't assume that all of the mushrooms growing in roughly the same spot outside are all the same species.
This old thread I posted back in '09 has an example of the kind of thing to watch out for (with pictures): https://mycotopia.ne...k-alike-thread/
And if there are still some concerns about eating positively identified outdoor mushrooms then make tea with them.
Great info ... thanks
I ended up eating them last night ... my gf and I ate about 5gs a piece of some dry fruit I had.... but we just ate some 3 days earlier( I keep trying to make myself wait a week, but impatience combined with beer always talks me into eating them early ) I've been eating between 5 to 7gs on average every 4 days and have been doing so for months... I still go on some beautiful trips, but doing them so frequently it's kind of hit and miss
Anyway , 5g last was a good mellow ride and after a couple hours I( still drunk and ringing off the mush) decided I wanted more than a mellow ride so I cut up the fruit I picked from yard and threw it in a pan of boiling water( it was 94 g wet)I made tea ..the outside fruit were incredibly dense and they were extra nasty
I expected a big come up.... but I think I already passed my peak from the ones I ate earlier
I ended up just getting this weird sleepy spaced out body high that just had me in a stupor, so I just laid down and watched a doc on sid barret ... then I laid in bed all night trying to sleep while I listened to my head hum-I hate when that happens - so I'm on no sleep, drinking a beer and trying to nurse this mushroom hangover
...I've got to learn some self control
Btw I love your honey tek , I have 50gs sitting in honey now ... can't wait to try it... oh wait, no , self control
