Forager’s Report 04/10/2017

I hit the Sonoma Coast five days ago. The mushrooms were far and few between. However, the ones I found, black trumpets, Hedgehogs and yellow feet were very large and in prime condition. The consistent rain is keeping them fresh, I suppose. I traded the hedgehogs for some trillium plants that were offered at a roadside plant stand in Jenner.   The oak loving chanterelle in Bay Area markets are as big as I’ve ever seen them, swollen by the rains. The delicious Amanita velosa is still fruiting behind my store. There is time, but not much to pick a few more mushrooms. As much as mushrooms are dependent on rain, they are also dependent on season and this one is winding down locally. It’s time to clean up your camp gear, check your tires and head to the mountains.  If any reader has advice or information to share, please do.

See you in the forest
