When I moved to Bainbridge Island last spring, there were areas of woods on the island which looked just right for chanterelles. On my way to checking to see if the dead alders were bearing oyster mushrooms again, I investigated the areas of suspect chanterelle habitat to see if my suspicion was correct. The subject line says it all.
Most of the chanterelles were in the button stage, so even though I only found two of pickable size I have more harvesting to look forward to, hopefully quite a bit more. If somebody else doesn’t get them before I do, that is.
