Shaggy Parasols fruiting in November!
The local extension service gave Jackie my number and she sent me these photos of a cluster of Chlorophyllum brunneum growing in her ancient pile of grass clippings. With Buddy’s help, I cooked some for her and went out to get more to eat and share. Because it has been so very cold (in the low 20s at night) and we have had snow and sleet, I expected they would all be gone. Fortunately the grass clippings kept them somewhat protected and we harvested many more to eat and marvel.
