This kids clipped wings today just too many escapes, and the dog next door looks hungry.

The two ladies at the bottom photo, which breed are they?

They are “Ameraucana” but that’s sort of a big umbrella at this point.

Birch polypore (Piptoporus betulinus)
This is a good maybe even one of the best medical mushroom to know. Especially if you you enjoy long hikes.

It is used for all sorts of things. I use it for cuts during hikes. It is kind of like a natural bandaid, but were It shines is in dealing with foot damage, blisters, cuts, cracks and scrapes. It’s rubbery and spongy consistency allows it to work as padding and it is a antiseptic/anti-inflammatory. It cools and gets rid of redness better then anything else I have tried. It is fairly common here, and it is easy to use just cut a sliver (plaster) take off your boots and socks and slid it in. I get moisture crakes all the time and using neosporin on toes just gives me squishy toes, and hurts more then helps. A couple slivers under my toes fixes me right up and feels good too. It seem to speed up healing, and I have been told it stops scarring, but have not used it for that. As far as I am concerned what it does for my feet is more then enough to make it a important mushroom, but it is also used in tea as a tonic, cleanser and immune booster etc.. The Ice man had it on him, and people speculate on what he used it for.

Got tied up for a week, and now I have an overgrown garden with powdery mildew. Not horrible but what do you do for powdery mildew?

I have a bunch of bicolor coming up under the nut trees. I like to mix them with garlic, butter, salt and pepper. Then wrap them and put them on the grill with whatever we are making.

Oak-Loving Collybia (Gymnopus dryophilus)

Cool, but a little creepy. One of my bosses at work ordered precast burial vaults minus the top and asked them to cast in some drains. It cost him 90$ a vault plus $10 a vault for delivery. The wood on the bottom was only added so he does not have to bend down at all to tend them. It is one of my favorite ideas ever for a box garden.

Today’s walk… Big laughing gym 😂, Ornate-Stalked bolete, Woodlands Amanita, Psathyrella rugocephala, Chanterelle, Blackish Red Russula, Cracked Green Russula, don’t know the last one.

Photo 27 Jul 71 notes Best lids ever. I ferment things as they come rip, and to be honest eat them too fast. These lids make small batches easy. I know you can make your own, but I like encouraging good inventions so I got a handful of them a year or so ago. I use them all the time.

Today’s walk, I was walking in the valley and ended up in a huge patch of lemon balm. It smelled AWSOME. Ended up picking a good bit of it. I think I am going to add it to a wheat beer I have going in the basement, but usually I use it for tea. Also found some chanterelles and others. Good walk
