Found these walking to my stand on Thursday... first one is chicken of the woods. I think it looked a little old, but what do you think? Second one I’m not sure what kind of mushroom they were, most likely not edible, but they were pretty cool looking.

The small one may be fall oysters? I can't tell from the pic.

Yep, those are oysters. Fantastic edible mushroom and they have some serious, anti bacterial medicinal qualities as well. One study showed a hot water extract of the oyster mushroom killed e coli bacteria and another type of nasty bacteria. Oysters are one of my favorites.

Huh.... good to know! Never would have thought they were edible just looking at them.
