A New Flush of Shrooms

Yesterday morning I woke up to see a new flush of what I think are the oyster mushrooms growing in the backyard.  I couldn’t believe it!  I thought they’d stopped growing for the winter, but the relative humidity must’ve been just right for fruiting.  I made a mental note to gather them up and do a little more experimenting.  Confound it, I forgot to do it, and last night we had a hard freeze.  They seem to have survived the cold overnight, but are probably freeze-dried by now and have lost their tender chewiness. :-(
