If there is one thing that can cure the post-morel blues it’s fresh chanterelles. With the rainfall, at this point in the year 13+ inches above normal, I’m expecting a great year. The normal season here in the Valley is around July 1 to Aug 15, although you will find them later in cooler locations. This year I spotted my first tiny ones on June 3. I let them grow for 10 days and then came back and picked this bunch. Granted, these are small but it’s a good sign.
These were from a spot that typically comes up first among the spots I hunt. I’m hoping for abundance in a couple of weeks.
