First Of The Season

A walk into the forest did yield a handful of Chanterelle mushrooms. The rain we have had in the last week will force the fungi to send new ‘fruit’ to the surface and I expect that we will see a more plentiful walk in a few days.

A plateful of mushrooms.When talking to professional mushroom hunters, they refer to the old adage of 10 days after a good rain of an inch or more.

Here on the farm we had only amassed an inch of rain in the whole month of September so it was a surprise to find any at all while I looked through the woods. This treat just makes my mouth water for better gathering.
