    I think the violet colored coral is edible but I didn't harvest it. IMG_4009.JPG IMG_4008.JPG

    Wow! That is a cool looking coral. I've never seen one like that!

    It's been so stupid hot and humid lately that I can't motivate myself to go for a hike!

    We got more rain this morning. I love the weather service. I'm watching the British Open about 8 AM and a weather warning comes on the screen. Flash flood watch for northern Trumbull Co., and severe thunderstorm warnings for Lawrence and Mercer Cos. in western PA. OK. Five minutes later, Hell is coming to breakfast right in my lap! I live in Mahoning Co., OH. Where was my warning?! It got as dark as night and looked like Armageddon!

    Thankfully it was a quick hitter. We got a quick 1/2" of rain on top of the 2" we got the other day! The heat and humidity is supposed be out of here Monday and Tuesday, so those are my target days to get out!

    Checked one of my spots before the blazing heat set in, picked around 3#s of chants in just a few minutes. Going to hit it hard this week once this heat wave goes away.

    Picked another pound of chants tonight 80 yards from my back door. Normally i wont see them until early august but checked anyway. Glad i did. Good news is the other spot beside my house has not flushed yet and in the right conditions can easily pick 5 grocery bags full in one picking. Happy hunting.

    These are definitely chanterelles. With all the rain we’ve had in NJ and the heat, I’ve found them growing in clusters and the caps are not your standard “vase” shape. Almost like cauliflower. But they are all smooth chants thus far. Some being huge and incredibly fresh and delicious.

    Took the beagle for a 3 mi hike today, didn't find much. Found some chanterelles that were pretty dry which surprised me because we had a nice rain on Monday. I did harvest enough for breakfast tomorrow. I also watched a turtle eating a russula. IMG_4017.JPG

    SquirrelKing, It's been that way for me the last few years. If they only have a couple of little holes in the stem I take them but a lot of what I find has the whole stem ate hollow. What area are you in, here in Snyder co. everything is dried up right now. Hoping for some rain next week.
