Turkey Tails

To start the new month off right, here’s another seasonal special:

Turkey Tail Fungus

That’s right, Turkey Tail fungus! This shelf fungus takes it name because the various colored stripes do resemble a turkey’s tail. Hickory and I revisited the shelf fungus from a post last January and found it has thrived over the summer, sending out many new fruiting bodies, which is what these ‘shelfs’ are.

    • That’s an interesting substitute idea, clotildajamcracker!
      But sorry, we can’t recommend that you try it. Eating wild plants should be checked through other sources than your neighborhood squirrels. 🙂
