Mushroom Time

Our daughter was visiting us this week and I took her mushrooming yesterday. While a college student, she worked in a restaurant with a wait staff that was keen on foraging. While visiting her years ago, she showed me chants in the woods for my first time. We were about 20 minutes from one of my good spots yesterday and I noticed a flash of gold on the right-of-way as we sped down the rural blacktop. I turned around, went back and as far as we could see along the shoulder were chants. I stayed in the truck with the flashers on and in 5 minutes she cut 2 pounds of large, prime, which is all we wanted. One was the size of a softball. We lunched on chant stuffed omelets with grilled Conecuh hickory smoked sausage as a side for lunch when we got back home. We didn't need to go where we had originally planned to go. This has been a banner year for chants. Gil

We've had a pretty good year so far this year. Here's a little recap.

Lots of chanterelles, black trumpets, chicken of the woods, morels.

Still nothing here. It's dust dry. We need some rain to pop them.

Wow! I got rained on about 4 times today. I'm only about 40-45 minutes from you. I'm also not absolutely sure what chanterelles are but I have seen some that I think are that are up here. What is the best way to tell? Spore color?

Just the overall look, and the gill surface, or lack thereof. The rain has been very hit and miss here lately. Some places drowned, and some like a desert.

There are few coming up on the corner of the yard that look something close to what y’all are calling chants. They’re up under a full time shaded area under big old pecan tree. Can’t say with any certainty,very few in any event.
