2014 Mushroom Season

Hello Mushroom Hunters! How did everyone do this year? The spring started off with a bang…morels and oysters everywhere…and then the heat came and everything stopped. We waited, and waited, and then the rains came! The fall season was a perfect mix of rain and heat. The chanterelles came, the porcini came and all of the other fall favorites showed up for the party. Every time it got too dry for mushrooms, the rains came and saved the flush. I don’t ever remeber picking this late into the year.Shaggy Parasol 0916131445
