Hello!!!

First time poster here. I'll be honest. for some reason shroomery.org wont let me create an account. saying something about how other people in my area have been abusing the site so now no one can make an account. FACK. they directed me towards this site and after reading through a few posts and seeing the lack of valid responses to posts...sorry guys. this forum seems dead. the stickys and tutorials are obviously very helpful but I'm not sure about current conversation.... so if anyone who has an account can link my post here to a thread on shroomery I would be very greatful:-)

I live in snohomish washington, about 30 miles north of seattle and 20 miles inland from the water. My home is on a couple acres of heavily wooded area and after reading up on mushrooms and going to a few farmers markets i decided to go mushroom hunting! Yes I am mainly looking for active mushrooms...but i do like to cook a lot so if anything i have here would go well in some risoto or on a burger, let me know!

I am in the process of getting spore prints of everything pictured here so i will update with that hopefully tomorrow or the day after. All the photos were taken with my galaxy S3.

here are a few i found growing out of my raised beds in my garden. fresh compost that was put in this summer:

the stems are thin and hollow, the caps were very smooth and a little slimy.
later on i found these EVERYWHERE... i have the feeling they aren't anything, but couldn't resist the chance to take photos.
here are a few more examples of these:

Now these were also in the raised beds but a little different.

I believe this is the same type as the others above but just a thicker, bigger product

On these the stem was thicker, a little fuzzy as you saw, the caps were still a bit slimy but not as translucent. I didn't notice any blue bruising on anything I picked today...BTW.

This in more a curiosity just to see if it is edible. Big mo-fo

similar to a shitake or portabello. looked yummy :)

These also looked like little trumpet mushrooms or something, purely culinary interests here:

as you can see these were growing in a mossy lawn. most were quite small, smaller than a dime. but i found a few good sized caps.

I believe these are the same strain as the first pictures I put up, but they are 50 times the size...different strain?

Now here is something new. Darker brown caps, looked fuzzy as appose to the smooth slippery caps of the others.

Now we are switching places, my neighbors yard, under an evergreen. The soil was a bit bare and rocky.

These caps also looked a bit fuzzy, but were quite moist. so was the grass...so whatever...
