August Mushrooms of the Month

Welcome to the August installment of Mushrooms of the Month. This this is one of my very favorite months to be out photographing and foraging for mushrooms as the diversity of gorgeous varieties are at their peak here in Ohio! I cannot think of a better time to be out in the woods right now and maybe you will find some tasty edibles along the way if you know what you are looking for and can identify it correctly. Feel free to send us your photos if you are not sure about the species you found and we will help you on it’s identification and edibility as best as we can. Enjoy the charms of Summer!

  1. I found a basketball size smooth white mushroom that favors a puffball but is more oblong than spherical. I’d like help identifying it but cannot find where to email my picture.
