I guess that's a good title for sharing what I found either in the woods or my yard..... showing different things and sharing what we do with them ..... food, medical, tools, plants to grow etc.

So here's the haul we found today.....

Red berries are fire or pin cherry

Yellow mushrooms are tiny chanterelles....to tiny but they were in the trail a dog almost stepped on them as this guy was passing us.... I told him to "be careful I was just about to get down and take a picture" he looked at me weird but was careful as the dog dragged him down a trai

Oh ya tree ear this mushie deserves the look ;) I had two with my stir-fry noodles ... two chanterelles too :-)

Two tomatoes from the garden we got rain don't want the bigger ones to split..... want the other ones to absorb more water......

And stevia?....... that very sweet herb......sugar substitute? Anyway...... from my yard not wild here....I thought it be nice to cook it with the cherries and make a jelly ......get some crab apples for the pectin and it be all ingredients that I grew or found.....:-) Oh ya a cayenne pepper was in the pic too for heat.....sweet, sour and heat it be even good with meat wild game especially.....it be a good tendering marrinade

My wife and I just went to a extension service class at the library today to learn more about identifying local wild berries, and plants. 

 

I am better at identifying plants where I grew in the Northern Oregon Coast mountains.  So it was nice to get some pointers from folks that have lived here all their lives.

Ok I've been trying to find my tree ear's name.... I found this link.... mushroom expert they are good at explaining the American and European differences with fungi this link makes the most sense

https://www.mushroom..._americana.html

I see this mushroom on Balsam wood after or while a certain crust fungi is growing on it ...

.....tremella a yellow witches butter grows on the fallen Spruce logs or Balsam logs and there is also a crust fungi growing on the logs too...this from Wikipedia

"Tremella is a genus of fungi in the family Tremellaceae. All Tremella species are parasites of other fungi and most produce anamorphic yeast states. "

.... I'm thinking and remembering something mentioned to me in wild mush. Fourm......that this mushroom grows on or eats this crust fungi.....???? Can't remember where. If anyone has info to share please do....
