    Found my first trumpets of the year on friday 6/19. Picked about a half pound all the rest were too small. Also found some cinnabars but they were very tiny just staring to flush.

    Maybe the heavy rains predicted for tonite will start our "Chan's" growing as they have been this size for about a weec now, they are sorta on hold........ "Chelios" that's a good haul,what size?

    Hey old elm, about a third 1 inches, 1 third 2 inches, and a third 3 inches. None were the yellow stemmed cibarius like in your pic, all were white stemmed phasmatis species. Very firm and tasty, though. It's weird though, I got some nice spots down south in Wisconsin that don't have anything yet. Is there anyway to post pics without photobucket at all?

    Old elm, I would love to have left them to grow like you are, but being a public spot, and with the veracity of the fungus gnats, there would have been nothing to come back to. We did, however, leave a couple hundred 1 inch or smaller ones behind. Not a clearcut by any means.

    Another 5 lb haul of cantharellus phasmatis today. Still a lot of baby shrooms to grow on there yet. Good luck!

    I've been finding a large assortment of mushrooms this summer:
    Chicken of the Woods, from already way past harvesting to just starting.
    Old Man of the Woods.
    King Boletes.
    Wood Ears.
    Chanterelles.
    Cinnabar Chanterelles.
    Porcini.
    It's been a wonderful year for Mushrooms so far!

    OldElm, nice haul, and I really love your knife. If you don't mind , where did you get it & how much. All I've seen are the non folding kind with the brush. That one looks like the whip !
