I really wasn't expecting the first King Bolete until later next week but here's proof the first one has fruited. Lita and Joe Gitt found their first Boletus edulis of the season.
What a beautiful mushroom! Porcini mushrooms are wonderful to find and delicious to eat. I love Joe's shirt - say it out loud and you'll get the pun.
Thanks to Lita for allowing me to share her photo with you here. To see the biggest King Bolete I've ever seen, here's the link: http://www.mendonomasightings.com/2011/10/17/the-biggest-king-bolete-ive-ever-seen-was-found-in-the-manchester-area-a-few-days-ago/
