The recent rains have brought a tremendous bloom of mushrooms, many of them choice edibles. Just look what Subir Sanyal foraged recently. Boletus edulis, Chanterelles, Coccora, Pig's Ears and a big Cauliflower mushroom, plus the first Candy Caps! Wow!
And here is another basket of mixed mushrooms picked by Subir. Not all of these are edibles; some he picked for their color. They sure make a beautiful basket, don't they?
Many people are still finding large porcini, Boletus edulis. Chanterelles are just beginning. After two years of nearly zero wild mushrooms, we are having a wonderful explosion of fungi!
Thanks to Subir for allowing me to share his photos with you here.
