We had this birch type tree ( black leaves) that was dying from the top down from insects so I cut it down on Thursday. That night I was thinking of all the wood I threw on the firewood pile and did not make anything from it. I got this brainstorm about turning it into mushrooms and sticking them around the trees in the yard.

Here are the first 4. They are not sanded or finished in any way. I thought I’d let them weather.

Mushrooms are just FUN to turn!!!!!!!!

Then I had to get back to some real work…...........Jim

What a COOL idea!

I think that is really cute! A nice yard decoration!

Depicts a rich fertile soil too… doesn’t it?

NICE JOB!

Thank you!

A gr8 addition to yards and/or gardens. Please don’t eat them. I hear they may do funny things to your sight…

Hey guys, in the first picture, which shape do you like the best?
I have more logs and may convert them to more shrooms!

I’ll put them in the neighbor’s yard!!!

I like the two on the left. THe bigger capped ones. I might have to do that with some pear wood chunks I have.

-- If I can't make it, I probably don't need it.

I like the second from the left and the one on the right because that is the best tasting one .
Used to pick them as a kid but they all look great Jim .
