Got some 'chicken of the woods' growing nicely near me, take a layer every now and then and as long as you're not greedy it will keep on cropping.

I've never seen them in the UK...


the ones in the middle of the plate are called liberty caps apparently and the most common uk shrooms


Highland Flyer's pointy one is a liberty cap. Yours may be a liberty cap, but when it gets that old and open it is too easily mistaken for other stuff...
Where did you find them?

Dude, that picture is one I found on Google, I'm too old for that shit now and have done more than my fair share of hallucinogenic drugs ;)

I guess it supports the old adage.

"If you can remember, you weren't there!"

I've seen quite a few of the red/spotted Fly Agaric around these parts of late, I think we're well into the season for shrooms already.

As for the "other sort" of mushrooms mentioned, they always used to grow on our shcool playing fields and the local cricket pitch of all places, needless to say that once word was out they weren't around for very long :wink:

The most prolific spot in my old hometown was the golf course.

Populated by masses of liberty caps, along with most of the off duty policemen of the town!

I came through Friday street today, up until last month, I hadn't been there since my hippy days[early 70's], we used to pick fly Agarics there and on the sides of the roads around there. I didn't see a single one today. We didn't have the net to check on stuff, so it was trial and error[suck it and see?]. The first time we tried them we just munched a bit each, I don't think I have seen so much puke in my life. We soon found out about drying them.
