This is a good year for shelf fungus. Our English White Oak has a sulphur fungus and the sugar maple has another unknown one. The sulphur shelf fungus is supposed to taste like chicken. Maybe I'll try a taste. Cooked, of course.
(This beautiful old white oak has an interesting history. It may have come from an acorn from a tree at Windsor Castle on Queen Victoria's Jubilee. 1887. I say this because another similar tree in Sussex NB with the exact same girth did come from one of those acorns.)
