TOO early for mushrooms??

Ive been out three days now over the past 7 days and havent found any edible mushrooms yet. I live on 165 acres in NE pa and usually will start finding "pipinki" (thats what we call them) about now. With all this rain, I figured it would be a good year. Been looking for sheepshead but no sign of them either, havent seen one of those in several years. Do you guys think the "pipinki" will be out soon?? Maybe ill give it a break for a few weeks and start again. Thanks

Re: TOO early for mushrooms??

I had a coral mushroom omlette last night. it tasted like I had used a handful of dirt instead of mushrooms. nonetheless, it had wild edible mushrooms in it so I saved that much money.

Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog.

Re: TOO early for mushrooms??

Spirit Bear can you please post a picture of the popinki's.. Think I found a bunch but not sure. Found 4 big fresh sheephead and 4 dried out ones. Left about 6 to grow a little bigger. Also picked a couple dozen oysters for the first time. Sauteed them in butter and they were not that great. Anyone tell me a good way to prepare them.

Thanks Roy
