    lots of mushroom pickers out in duff. chatted them up, mainly of eastern european descent. they where happy to show what they where picking.

    took some snaps of mushrooms we found...

    bad form here, take home your trash when you are done with it. leaving it up is just plan lazy. we took down what we could and packed it out.

    played on a few logs...

    took home some treats for dinner...

    Just a question. Do you have a general guideline or a reference that I can go look at for edible mushrooms?

    I'm not about to go harvesting anywhere, I'm just interested more in enjoying the forest and my ride now that fall's here.

    the best thing to do is take a course. edwards gardens (in the don) used to have a course a few years ago. not sure if it is still around. dufferin forest does have a course but it has past. plus you got to book well ahead of time. it sells out every year, and there is a waiting list.

    Discovering Mushrooms Alliston, ON
    Join renowned naturalist, Bob Bowles, on this mushroom identification walk and learn how mushrooms grow, where they grow, how to identify them, their relationship with trees and the soil, and what species are edible. Cost: $10. Pre-registration required. For more information or to register contact Caroline Mach at 705-435-1881.

    i hope to get in this year.

    looks like a not bad book below, but i would take the course, better to learn hands on.Mushrooms of Ontario and Eastern Canada: George Barron, Lee Craig: Books |

    Seriously though, mushrooms are pretty interesting. They take so many different shapes, and colours. I like the pictures.

    That was a fun ride and a interesting change of pace from all the dh. However we did find a few nice decents.
    The eastern european couple we met on the trail were very proud of their mushroom yield.
