Mushroom Hunting

For PMB 113, California Mushrooms, we have to sign up to collect mushrooms for the lab section. On Saturday, my friend and I went to the Berkeley Marina to collect mushrooms. We went quite early in the morning, around 8 or 9 am, and stayed until 11 am. At first we didn't find anything, but once we found the first little brown mushroom, we started seeing them everywhere! I'm pretty sure we collected at least five different types of LBMs (little brown mushrooms, not all of them brown), two types of shelf fungi, an inky cap, an earthstar, puffballs, some slimy mushrooms, and some Agaricus mushrooms. They're all sitting in my fridge right now. Hopefully they're still intact for lab tomorrow.

Some type of Agaricus, I think...




A few days ago, I bought some portobello mushrooms (Agaricus bisporus). I stuffed them with spinach, tomatoes, onions, and garlic and topped them off with a slice of mozzarella cheese. My sister thought it was good, but I still can't say that I like the taste of mushrooms.
