Other Mushrooms: black trumpets, B. edulis, chaga, chanterelles, chicken, princes, wine caps, etc
General Information: We just got back from northern Vermont, where we found a lot of black trumpets, tons of large chanterelles, some nice bluing boletes (Gyroporus cyanescens), about 50 lbs of Chaga, and one Boletus edulis. When we got back to Ohio, we were greeted by a giant white pored chicken, a huge patch of princes (Agaricus subrufescens), many large hedgehogs (Hydnum repandum) and a nice fruiting of the wine cap stropharias that I had planted in the garden. Pretty good August so far
