nice
as it is getting to that time of year im checking my best spot daily and no shrooms so far but the "crop patterns " look promising

at a guess we need a bit more rain and a few degrees cooler round here to get em going.
the birch boletus a bit along the road usually precede em by a couple of weeks and no sign of them yet either.

ahhh, shroomer chat, bless

as an aside last winter was rather odd for cold weather ones, imho too warm to start and then cold a bit too late .
very few velvets or oysters etc this year

Found a chicken of the woods last Friday. Perfectly tender, but I had to move on before eating it, left with Mrs. Slim in the fridge.

Haven't had much time to get out and search for new spots in my new locale

I will be visiting a site I know where there is chicken of the woods in about 3 weeks, so will look out for it. I will leave it where it is though. As it has been very dry here it might not have come out yet though.
