Huge Year For Mushrooms

This year has been the most prolific for mushrooms that I recall in northern Maine. The local woods have been full of mushrooms since June, including these Amanitas I took a picture of the other day. I have eaten more boletes than any other year, as well as Suillis and other related genera. We also had our patch of morels in the spring.

In an attempt to up my fungi game I have been studying about them as well, learning about the mycorrhizal relationships between certain mushrooms and tree species. My field guide of choice has been Mushrooms Of Northeast North America by George Barron. Overall it has been an interesting and rewarding study. But all things come to an end, and with hard frosts the past few nights our mushroom season will soon be only a memory and a bunch of dried boletes.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
