First find...

May 2nd. First edible find for 2012. Winecaps or King Stropharia, and it was a nice patch too, but I won't be eating any of these. Why? Because I found them on some wood chips while playing golf and you should never eat any mushrooms found on or around golf courses since they are notorious for using all sorts of fertilizer and pesticides. Still it was an interesting find for me because I haven't foraged winecaps before, which is odd because they're fairly common. Note the cap of the one on the upper right...The distinctive wine color is washed out to the point where it looks like any common brown mushroom. These probably fruited during a heavy rain we had 10 days ago and were starting to get old.
