Interesting observations - speaking personally, it's been the most spectacular year for Ceps for many years. Not much in the way of other shrooms (except other boletes). Last two or three years have b ...

I found a big patch of yellow strainers 2 seasons ago. They do look very similar to "field mushrooms" & only the yellow staining at the base of the stipe & the slightly "inky" smell to give it ...

Interesting - straws in the wind pointing to an odd season. I'm going to continue to keep an eye on my shroom spots over the next few weeks to see if anything changes.

It seems to be a funny old season - I can't figure out if it's running early, or late, or just not really happening. I found a load of lovely chanterelles yesterday which is much later than I would no ...

Still hoping that October might redeem the Cep harvest, but I guess that will be weather dependent here in the south.

Interesting - I must try that. Generally I just dry them (when there's any to find - grrrrr) in the dehydrator and then straight into the storage jar. I guess I'm concerned lest they absorb moisture a ...

Nowt, nader, zilch, nuttin' - ceps seem to be awol where I am. Hoping that they are just running late, but fear the wet summer has scuppered them. Time will tell...

To me it makes no sense imposing a total ban - a knee jerk reaction. I can understand and support the desire to clamp down on commercial picking which often strips out whole areas irrespective of edib ...

It's been a rather disappointing season for shrooms so far, at least where I am. Good forage today though - lots of Hedghog mushrooms, Winter Chanterelles, and tons of Horn of Plenty. Even a Cep. Mayb ...

Boletus aereus, the Dark Cep. Far less common than the normal Cep, though found in the same habitat at the same time of year. Dark brown cap, stipe is shorter, darker & oval rather than round cros ...
