Who wants to see my big mushroom?

Boletus edulis, sprouting up under the pine trees on the golf course, five minutes walk away.
I tried to pose Mrs Spat sitting beside them to make them look smaller, but she went away over the fence to break things next door.

 UPDATED with more cooperative Siamese.
Would it be very wrong to carve the large lopsided one into the shape of a liver and eat it with fava beans?

Cats and mushrooms are natural enemies, or so I have read...

You know, Laura would probably book a flight to the antipodes just to stomp on those 'shrooms.

SO JEALOUS. I only get oysters because I threw the spawn out myself. Also spread morel and wine cap but no joy.

Laura is ELIMINATIONIST.

Those look excellent.

Tigris, try plug spawn, I've had excellent results with oysters and shitakes;

Tigris, try plug spawn, I've had good results with both oysters and shitakes.

I guess it's no surprise that Gavin is also a fungus hunter.

So where's the mush?

Did I really type plug spawn here? Ruh roh.

El M, I was planing to do plugs for chicken of the woods this year, but turns out we're going to be moving.

I am a Siamese and I endorse these psychotropic mushrooms. You are in my power, puny humans!
