Thank You Nunyabiz,Ya I am glad to be back in an area where I can pick them again myself.Last season was my first trip to the field in ten years,and really looking forward to this season.I still have a few grams of dried semis left,enough for one good cup of tea anyway...
Awesome work Doc.. Wish I lived where those things grow.. Only indoors here.. As far as I know anyways.. I've read that subs grow around here but have yet to find any..

i have tons of mushrooms in my yard that look just like these, i live in ny and it has been very wet lately and i wonder if it is worth picking these or could these be some poisonous look-a-like?
Liberty caps grow in fields around sedge grasses and never in manure in upper state New York along the Canadian Border of Ontario to New Brunswick to P. E. Island and New Found Land. They appear in the early to late fall in pasturelands and never in manure but with their mycelia attached to the roots of wild grasses.
You would not find them in your yard in New York.

I didn't feel like getting up at the crack of dawn this morning,I knew it was still early in the season and really had no expectations other then not finding anything,and spending the next 3 hours in the woods photographing various other mushrooms,still fun but not what I am going out for.Plus I did not know if the cows were still in the fields or not.
So I got in there around 10 am,quite late but awe well,better late then never or so they say.I was trotting through the tall grass and alder bushes looking for about a half hour before I found the first little patch,it had about 10 or so mushrooms in it,then I started finding them everywhere.In total today I found 167 which isn't bad considering I wasn't expecting to find anything.So it is Official...The P.semilanceata season has started here.
I took a few photo's from today's hunt but not too many,I was kind of worried that a cow/s may come flying out of the bush at any moment and I had to be ready for evasive maneuvers ha ha,a little paranoid but rightfully so,if you had of seen those cows chase me in the woods you would understand lol.
