I saw a few deliciously edible oysters mushrooms growing on a willow tree the other day. The tree was on private land in an area where I didn't feel comfortable hopping the fence, so rather than taking a risk I headed out by boat to a river bottom rich in willows to see if the flush was more widespread -- it was. Unfortunately most of the mushrooms were well beyond my reach (I'm only 3 feet 4 inches tall ). Had I been a bit more adept at planning in advance a small ladder would have been taken. Came home with around five pounds... a ladder would have easily increased the total harvest by a factor of three or four -- lesson learned (or relearned, this sort of thing happens every year). Here is the youtube video shot while plucking the shrooms.
