A lot of my spots have not started, but some have. This, I believe, is as much about the DNA and natural variability of the creature as it is about the weather. What I have found have been in the bottom of wet drainages with significant beech and white oak, The ones in this picture were along the banks of the drains in a wide hollow where the drains start to braid. Southerners will know what I mean.
I have found some in drier locations, but they have been spotty and dry. Hopefully, the rain due (??) this weekend will help some of these locations flush. On the other hand, it’s this variability of DNA, weather, site, etc. that makes chanterelle season such a long and productive time. So . . . never write off a site that looks good until the season is over. Keep going back and over time you will have productive patches that , overall, yield chanterelles from mid-June ’til early fall. Love ’em !!!
