I saw a huge one on the turnpike down by Lancaster Tuesday. I didn't think I could park and climb the fence fast enough before the cops got to me, so I had to pass it up. That's only the second one I've ever found, so I was a little mad!
Both chickens and sheeps are really good mushrooms. In my opinion both can get tough when they get older. I usually just both mushrooms just before they reach full maturity that way they are tender all the way through.
On a plus note I did find about ten hen of the woods yesterday. The catch is that all are about the size of a cup. How many days before I should go back and look at them again?
Found 3 sheepheads today,2 small ones which i didn't pick and one about the size of a football also one tick on my wrist.The tick just started to bore in so it wasn't to hard to pull out,now i have to call the doctor to get a prescription incase it had lyme disease.
thought i was done, got a total of 57. turned my boss onto sheepheads his mother who is 86 knew exactly what it was and said she hasnt eaten them since she was a little girl. reports from my boss's house,,,,,THAT THING IS FANTASTIC!!!!! take me with you and show me how to find them. A future mushroom hunter I have found.
