Imagine our surprise to see these oyster mushrooms bloom overnight on a stump in our chicken yard. I had to fight off the chickens to harvest them. We have had a LOT of rain recently, so I imagine that is what caused them to bloom, and bloom so large.

(The chickens are in their yard now, because there is a coyote in the neighborhood. We have lost one Australorp already.)

NOTE: These mushrooms have a deadly look-alike. Please do not gather mushrooms in the wild until you can safely identify them.

We collected these mushrooms near a bridge we were photographing. John cooked them up that night and I tasted them for the first time. Supposedly, Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup is made with oyster mushrooms. They tasted the same and looked the same.
