imba weekend

the imba trail crew came to Frederick this weekend... there was a class on trail maintenance, the actual doing of trail maintenance and a group ride... i skipped out on the trail maintenance because i was still sore from shoving and moving rocks helping my housemate Hillery with her backyard pond business... during which i saw a black widow...
i did go to the group ride... it was a big group... probably 30+.

Joe was the ride leader...

went back and picked mushrooms i found while riding ... most of them were overripe.


puffball mushrooms

found a field of puffball mushrooms when i was out riding today... at least a hundred of them... all about the size of softballs some bigger some housemate Hillery introduced me to these... she saw some along the side of the road a few weeks ago... she brought them home and we grilled and ate them.

i was only able to carry one home... had to carry it in my hand ... it was too big to fit in my jersey pockets.

i think they go bad pretty fast... and dont think they store well... but for the next few weeks anyway i know where i can get all the mushrooms i can eat.
