Mushrooms: poisonous or edible? It's mostly experience and instinct, but a good rule of thumb is if it has ridges under the cap, it's poisonous. I'm certainly no expert with only local mushroom knowledge.

I had already purchased my necessary items from Rural King, when I broused through the garden section outdoors yesterday. Since half my Red Haven peach tree lost limbs over the winter, I bought another one (for $20). Plus, I couldn't resist buying another blueberry plant ($9). My only surviving plant needed a companion!

Rule of thumb with mushrooms if you don't know somebody who has ate it and is still alive with no health problems at all don't eat it

Randall, what is it you see that determines they are poisonous?

Sorry all. I had to do it somewhere.

Rain, rain and more rain. I'm sick of it. Between breaks in the rain it's to wet to do anything but suffer the humidity and watch shrubs lose leaves from a blight.
That's my bitching for the day!

Glad you finally got some rain Randall.  

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 12, 2014 at 7:15am

You're correct King.  Those are beet seedlings.

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 12, 2014 at 7:14am

Randall, thanks.  I will not try to multiply them!

Comment by Randall Smith on May 12, 2014 at 7:08am

Spud, I don't know the actual names, but they're definitely not edible! Very poisonous. Our edible mushroom season never occurred this spring--too dry. I did receive 2.2" of rain over night, however! Still, it's too late, I'm afraid. But the rain sure will help the garden!
