So, we have these HUGE mushrooms growing at the base of our oak trees. Yesterday, Lisa (our church's resident mushroom expert) stopped by to take a look and identify them. Boy, was she excited! Turns out, they are Maitakes. One of her favorites. So, we picked a bunch, she took some home; and Will made mushroom soup with the rest. It was yummy!
Here are a couple of photos of the mushrooms, including Vivian for a size comparison - that cluster alone weighed over 3 lbs!
