Last evening the weather guessers made it sound like hell was coming to dinner today. We got a few sprinkles. There was one severe t'storm warning for Mercer Co., so it seems like they got some moisture. Oh well, it will make cutting the grass again tomorrow a little easier. I'll be glad when it slows down so I only have to cut it once a week!
My first outing for Summer Mushrooms will be for Red Reishi in SE Ohio. It is on the same latitude as the southern PA border. June usually is good for me here in OH as the Reishi haven't been out long and therefore are more free from bugs.
After a rough start to this year's mushrooming (no fault to weather, just life in general) I finally made it out and about. With success! I found chicken, both Cincinnatus and sulphurous. I found the C while hiking, so I was able to get a picture. I spotted the S from the moving car so I jumped out to collect it without my phone so no pictures of it. But I'm happy to say my favorite summer mushrooms are out.
Went out today, looking for chanterelles. Found a few in Blair county. Went to Centre county and didn't find anything out interest, except maybe this? I think it might actually be a porcini. It has the webbing, and white margin. Any thoughts anyone? I'll cut it up and check the Bolete Filter website. But does anyone have any experience?
Update sadly, it is the bitter Bolete. I think I'll put it in my mulch out front. Maybe I'll grow some fun large mushrooms for the neighbors to look at.
