Baskets overfloweth

29 Sep

Nature Moncton held a wild mushroom workshop this afternoon so I took over the mushrooms that were shown in last night’s blogging boletus post and decided this morning to gather up a few more varieties for the event.

Started out pretty good with a few honey mushrooms, king boletes and orange-latex milkys, but I soon found out all the small mushroom would need to be transfer to other containers as the King bolete and bay bolete were out in force. I gathered 2 other wild mushrooms,  Catathelasma ventricosum and  a handful of grayling and then spent the next hour picking some huge boletes some over a lb each and end up with more king boletes then I’ve seen in a decade, the dry summer with a rainy last half of September really stirred up the boletus.

The baskets and car trunk were full and now the food driers are heating the house on this cool evening with the pleasant aroma of earthy King and Bay boletus. I can smell the lovely winter soups already. ciao
