    Not much mushroom hunting for me. Spent some time up at camp with these two coyotes of the water way. Most interesting find was a hell bender found while swimming in creek. No pic camera and water don’t mix. Happy Exploring the wilds of PA! 9E6D5E36-69E0-4FA3-B46D-82CC2111256C.jpeg 548D5EBF-FB69-4B35-ADD0-D1E85C91A722.jpeg A41463D1-9427-4948-BC66-D07EA8913503.jpeg 4C8329FE-24C6-4B0B-AFD0-4EE794E477C9.jpeg

    I took a break between rounds of chores today to go walk a hardwood ridge near me. Didn't have a lot of time to spend, but I didn't need it! I wasn't 10 seconds in the woods when I spotted my first pair of smooth Chants that were over the hill, and dried up! Walking further I spotted other Chants, some dried out, but many just sprouted. Young and tender, but very small. there's rain in our forecast, and I need to be out there after it leaves.

    There's a ton of Chants on that ridge, and a serious picker could have a field day! I just love a new discovery!

    I went out for a big day of naturalizing all over WPA, and picked chants in four counties. None of them were huge hauls, but I think I got 4# or so. For all of the areas I know that I've gotten motherloads on before, none of those have produced again like that in the last 8-9 years. But we have a reasonable amount for pizzas and risotto and frittatas and such. Haven't found any of my favored boletes in years, either.

    Seeing a lot of posts about Old Mans. I have seen them and never paid them much mind; didn't know anything about them. I am anxious to find this year and have my 1st taste. As I just did a quick search/study on them just now, I came across a recipe for them in Cajun browned venison in dark brown gravy. Looks delish. Can't wait to do my spore print . . .

    Kinda weird here in NE Ohio too. Mahoning Co. Haven't spotted a single bolete yet, even where I've found them with regularity in years past. But it was rainier at this time in the recent past. The woods I walked the other day were extremely dry and crackly! maybe after this next round of precip, the boletes will start coming.

    I took the beagle for a walk this afternoon to an area that I usually find lots of chanterelles. Everything was too dry but I did find some reishi, some were moldy but I harvested a couple that were still good. IMG_4024.JPG IMG_4025.JPG IMG_4026.JPG

    I found a few acres of chanterelles today. A lot were too buggy but I harvested a few pounds that weren't too bad. In Mifflin co. Pa. IMG_4030.JPG IMG_4031.JPG IMG_4032.JPG
