That’s where I’ve been the past two weeks, so now it’s time to catch up with a post. I had three private forays that were very successful in the variety and number of mushrooms the clients collected. Of course, I’ve been picking chanterelles, checking the lobster patch, enjoying my days in the woods despite the extreme heat and humidity.
Among the edibles found in the last two weeks are Chanterelles (many kinds), Chicken of the Woods, Lactarius (volemus, corrugis and hyrophoides, Purple Lacarria, Bicolor boletes, Sparassis, Fistulina (beefsteak), Black Trumpets and lobsters.
I have only seen Lactarius atroviridis once, at an Oconee foray. This one we found in the Smokies, but several days later I found 4 or 5 in a group in my “close to the house” hunting ground. Oak-small beech mix.
And of course, my favorite.
