We recently (and ashamedly) turned in our prognosticator’s badges, and are still puzzling over why this fall mushroom season has been – at least so far – such a disappointing one. The signs seemed auspicious and totally optimistic: a good, soaking rain in late August (2-1/2”, here), followed by warm dry weather, interspersed with occasional, additional rains. We could hardly contain ourselves.
We found a lovely bolete growing in a friend's
yard in downtown Port Orford.
