Kind of a bust for chants for me this year, but I also wasn't able to hit it as hard as I'd like this july/august due to work/life. Oysters, chickens, and reishi have been bountiful the last couple weeks though.
From the folks I've talked to its been kind of a feast or famine situation regarding cantherellus and craterellus this year, trending towards famine — much like the morel season (I actually found one, lone, very old and gross craterellus sp. Just yesterday). I guess it was a good year for lobster locally as they're apparently more drought resistant, and those who got out and hit it hard found chants/hedgehogs early in the season.
I'm hoping the recent rains provide us with a bountiful grifola season. Have yet to see one myself, but my buddy has a couple in his yard. Haven't seen any hericium yet either.
