When I pick mushrooms, they are already packaged at the store.  If I get sick from those, I will now who to take to court

It an be a risky hobby, picking the wild fungus, but most agree the rewards are worth it, at least those who survive do.

Like Ed, I pick my mushrooms at a store, with the assumption that the growers know what they are picking!

We have to wait for them William Feela to be shipped in.  We mostly buy at Costco or Sams Club!  None locally that we know of.

Good morning William. I see mushrooms on my property but always uproot them and then discard. I wouldn't know about the poisonous ones and prefer safety.

I have a friend that does know and we get some great ones every year.

Never picked a mushroom in my life other than from a package in the grocery store or Farmers Market.

I used to pick them in the woods all the time on our farm, but haven't in a long time.

Make it a great week!

I've always thought it would be fun to pick wild mushrooms.  However, I would absolutely know nothing about it, therefore it would be incredibly dangerous. Store bought varieties are cheap compared to hospital bills, and a funeral!
