Stalking the Wild Mushroom

With the wet cool autumn upon us, it is time to put on our boots and take to the woods to find the mushrooms of September. 

 There are many kinds of mushrooms, toadstools, and their friends in yards and woods in NW Wisconsin, and unless you know which are edible and which are deadible, you need to beware.

I test every mushroom on the neighbor's cats and if they seem fine after 24 hours, I figure it is safe.
