There aren't any. Took a walk in the wood Sunday morning in Lafayette County just to see what was out there, and I didn't see much--not even inedible species. I hit a couple creek bottoms where the ground was wet enough to be a little soft, and still nothing. I guess its been so dry and so hot for so long that the recent little bit of rain had no effect. I'll check again in a week or two. Anybody got anything to report?

Ive had a pretty good chanterelle and oyster year so far. Chants were really early this year too, like 3 weeks earlier than Ive ever found them before. This is in the Fox Valley and we have had a pretty good summer for rain. Its a little dry right now, so I havent been out in a week or so. The down side to the relatively wet summer, mosquitoes and deer flies are killing me!

Interesting. I might have to take a drive north. Ton of rain north of the Wisconsin River last weekend. By me, I've never seen less mosquitos.

The meadow mushroom loves humidity, so look out for them after rainfall in the warmer months during spring, summer, and fall. The meadow mushroom can be identified by a flat white cap when the mushroom has reached a mature stage, but you will find the varying colors of gills underneath that denote the age of the mushroom in this variety.
