My mushroom maniac friend Dale continues to find mushrooms fruiting near the Oregon coast these days! He sent this photo of a bundle of small Hedgehog mushrooms (Dentinum repandum) with a few Winter Chanterelles (Craterellus tubaeformis.) So late in the season or is it just way too early?!
I don’t know what to think when folks are bringing in fully expanded, spored out but still fresh Agaricus sp. from the COCC campus in mid-February. I heard talk of morels appearing in the Willamette valley. This coming spring mushroom season looks like it will be early and a short one.
