Red Car Property: Extreme Humidity, Extreme Fungus

Photo: Diane Edwardson, July 7, 2014.  Mushrooms are generally a winter work of art on the Red Car Property.  This one is about 12" in diameter, growing at the base of a tree behind Rose Scharlin Preschool.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Disclaimer: We often get emails suggesting some plants are edible.  The Corralitas Red Car Property Blog prefers to quote reliable sources, such as CalFlora and California Poison Control on the issue of toxicity. MykoWeb is the resource everyone seems to refer to for mushrooms. The Los Angeles Mycological Society has a recommended reading list.  

If you are eating your way through the Red Car Property, we DO NOT recommend you eat any plant you find in the Red Car Property neighborhood without first doing your own research.
