A Facebook friend sent out the alert: puff balls spotted on the rail trail!
Last night, Reiner and I hiked the trail toward a likely spot. As luck would have it, when we were about a kilometer away, a fellow parked his bike, ambled into the woods, and just as we approached, he emerged carrying a sack of the giant mushrooms. Dang! So close!
Today we decided to check the woods behind our own house. Bonanza! Three of the delectable giant ‘shrooms now reside in our fridge. Well, two-and-a-half to be precise. The other half is being digested as I type.
I’ve been on a social media roll today. So, I’ll stop writing and show you the pictures. Enjoy!
