The rain is so bad. I can’t go out hiking today.So I looked back in my journal the oyster mushrooms came out the same time last year almost to the day. I looked to see what comes out next and it looks like it will be Berkeleys Polypore. Last year they were huge and everywhere. This is a picture of one that I ended up taking home for the dinner table. I’m betting they’ll start popping up Thursday or Friday.
